As early as the age of four, Mozart amazed his father with his quickness of mind at the keyboard. The first works are easy dance movements by the five-year-old who developed with extraordinary speed. During his lifetime, he wrote several piano pieces, apart from the sonatas and variations. The pieces from his youth, most of them written down in the music book for Maria Anna Mozart and in the so-called London sketch book, are mostly short dance movements, but already there are lengthy individual movements as well. From the mid-1770s, there are mainly larger individual works, including fantasias and rondos which can stand up as equals to the sonatas and variations of the Viennese period. Volume 2 contains the mature works from the later years of composition, including the popular fantasias and rondos as well as several drafts in sonata form completed by contemporaries of Mozart. In addition, the present edition contains solo piano versions of the Concert Rondo K 382, the rondo from the Duo for violin and viola K 423, as well as the overture of the 'Abduction from the Seraglio', as well as completion to K399 (Sarabande), K312 and K400 by Robert D. Levin.
