This was (after KV 329) the second most difficult to transcribe. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and also one of the most energetic ones, so much it could be the opening allegro of a sturm-und-drang symphony (like the KV 183). It is a bit of a shame that it is not divided in two halves (although it could be) because this means “no ritornello”.

I was especially curious and happy to transcribe this because it is catalog-close to one of my all-time (ever since I was a young boy) favorite Mozart works, that is the first Piano Sonata KV 279 in C major.
