Third installment in our journey through Mozart’s Dances for Orchestra, another freebie: an isolated Contredanse – generally the Contredanses come in groups in the Kochel catalog.
For some reason (the transcribed version of) this work gives me an “Italian” feel, kind of like an early Scarlatti sonata (!?) perhaps it was written during Mozart’s journey in Italy?
