Besides being Mozart’s most popular and frequently played violin sonata, it is also the only one set in a minor key. He wrote it in Mannheim and Paris in 1778 along with a few other sonatas, choosing a somewhat unusual two-movement layout. As all lovers of domestic music-making know, this profound and beautiful piece is not all that difficult to play. Our edition is extracted from volume 1 of the complete violin sonatas and includes a preface and the requisite critical commentary.

After researching a variety of sources, the editor has taken the autograph score as the foundation for this latest edition. Bowing and fingering is indicated in the violin part and the piano part also contains some fingering. The helpful layout ensures that page-turns are easily managed. An excellent performing edition.
