Sonata in G Major, K.301, by W. A. Mozart
Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt
Alto Flute Part, PDF $4.99
This sunny sonata has two movements, an up-beat Allegro con spirito followed by an Allegro that is actually a sprightly minuet with a trio section in the minor, almost as near to a Beethoven scherzo as a Haydn minuet. The violin leads as often as the piano, including at the beginning and throughout the trio, but is largely spared Mozart's typical keyboard passage work. As with six other violin sonatas composed in 1778, the first of Mozart's maturity, the violin part rarely makes significant use of double stops and is in general very well suited to alto flute. In fact, K.301 was begun with flute in mind. We provide our transcribed alto flute part - please click to preview p1.
