The Amadeus-Suite is a result of Stamm's Mozart's organ music studies.

Besides the three well-known pieces KV 594, 608 and 616 and other pieces for keyboardwithout special assignment, which suggest the performance on an organ, I couldfind among the many fragments left by Mozart some, which had been designed fororgan or -- like fugue fragments -- are suited for organ. Some of thoses themeswere so concise, that continuing them in Mozart's late style seemed a charmingidea to me. In his latest years Mozart had reached a new freedom of formalconception and harmonic modulation.

The first three measures of the introducing Adagio are the fragment ofan Adagio d minor KV Anh. 34 (385h) in the style of a French ouverture.According to this form it seemed obvious to continue with a Fugue, for whichfragment KV 375h seemed suited.

The 3rd mvmt Adagio begins with a fragment in b minor without KV number(m. 1-5), a theme which reminds much of Adagio in b minor KV 540 for piano,perhaps a previous attempt of the latter. M. 11-13 have been taken from anAdagio in d minor „für ein Orgelwerk" (there forming m. 4-7). The final Rondo begins with nine measures of the fuguefragment KV Anh. 33 and 40 (383b). Mozarts notation ends with the themeentrance in the bass. The final Rondo begins with nine measures of the fuguefragment KV Anh. 33 and 40 (383b). Mozarts notation ends with the themeentrance in the bass. Regardless of why he left the sketch unfinished, thetheme seemed to dance-like for a normal fugue construction.

Therefore I used it as a introducing fugato leading to a new theme -- oformal synthesis found several times in Mozart's works. As a third theme the fragmentof a Menuett in D major KV Anh. 34 (385h II, KV 6: 576a) has been integrated.

The hints concerning the registration are mainly limited to dynamiclevels on the manuels.

The introducing Adagio should be played with a pleno sound includingreeds, mainly in the pedal, the fugue in a reduced registration and brilliant,the Adagio based on soft stops like Flutes and Gambas, increasing in the middlesection.
