Duration: 2 minutes and 20 seconds
A spritely Mozartean presto from his Symphony No. 1, written when he was just eight years old! A few tricky technical things keeps it especially interesting...and really fun. Great for teaching the style. Great program notes and performance hints by the transcriber.
ITG Journal, June 2021, page 94:
"...a well crafted transcription that can serve as a great tool for teaching Classical period performance techniques." "...a very manageable written range from g to c"' that provides opportunities for all five players to display their stylistic skills though its use of voice interplay, unison lines, staccato and legato playing, and dramatic dynamic changes." "...strong undergraduate- or professional-level ensemble to perform with limited preparation feature for a recital or a special event like a weeding or reception."
