Those wishing to get to know Mozart's gentle; slightly elegiac side should play the opening movement of this lesser-known piano sonata K. 570. The second movement; too; marries the calm strains of horns with a somber melody in C minor. Only in the spirited B flat Major finale (“Allegretto”; in alla breve meter) does the mood shift to – restrained – gaiety. Strangely enough; this sonata was initially published (posthumously in 1796) as a vioin sonata; a version that is not at all hard on the ears. If we didnt have Mozart's autograph manuscript of the piano sonata (albeit only in fragments); along with his entry in his own catalog of works (Vienna; February 1789: “A sonata for piano solo.”); one might presume that this sonata in B flat Major existed as a genuine pair of twins (with and without violin accompaniment).
