Happy Birthday Mozart! (+ Free Sheet Music, of course!)

Updated: Feb 6

Hello Piano Peeps!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756, and I wanted to give you the chance to play a Mozart piece to celebrate 🥳 🎶💃🏾 🎹. I have arranged one of his most famous Sonatas which is a Theme with seven Variations. Researching this Sonata in collections of Mozart's Sonatas I have seen it referred to as Sonata XVI, IX and XI. All I can say for sure is that it is K.331 (the Köchel number is consistent) and it was originally written in A Major. This beautiful theme appears very simply (transposed to the key of C) in my Upper Hands Piano, BOOK 1. Today I have added additional notes to that BOOK 1 arrangement, and I am also attaching the original sheet music for late intermediate*(see my note on levels below) and advanced piano enthusiasts. The final movement of this Sonata is the popular Alla Turca, so I am including an early intermediate* arrangement of that for you too. Wouldn't Mozart be thrilled to know that we are all playing and loving his music on his birthday?!

What are your favorite Mozart pieces? Last year I post free sheet music for Romanze, the 2nd Movement of Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, which is still available to you if you would like to play it. I love Mozart's Piano Sonatas best, and often find solace in playing through them when times get tough.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful, gentle theme, whatever your level*. Stay warm and cozy, and raise a cup ☕ and play an homage 🎵 to our 💛 Mozart 💛 on his birthday, this Saturday! With love and music, Gaili

*Levels are very subjective. I think of late beginner as being at least one year of piano study, early intermediate as at least 18 months of piano study, and intermediate to late intermediate as 2-5 years of study. But these terms are just approximate.
