This is actually a five-voice canon with three themes. Each theme is repeated with a two-bar shift between the voices but always at the same pitch. Obviously you can’t do this on the piano so I resorted to octave transposing, with some liberties… the score in the video will only show the beginning of the three sections, and the ending (get the full original score from the Neue Mozart Ausgabe). For a recording of the original, I recommend the Vocaloid girls one you can find on YouTube (CYPLvZ1HrOI) 🙂 that’s also the recording I found by chance and the one that made me discover and want to transcribe this piece.
