Alto Flute Part, PDF $3.99

Mozart's Sonata in A Major, K.305 is perhaps the most completely extroverted of the Mannheim sonatas.  Like K.302, it opens with four emphatically tonic bars, followed by a gentle, linear four-bar theme, all immediately repeated.  The second movement of K.305 is the only movement of the Mannheim sonatas in theme-and-variations form.  It is far from routine.  The theme has an unusual variety of rhythms and accompaniment figurations; the 32nd-note variation is the very first, not a later one; the minor variation is at the prevailing tempo, not slow; and a brief but telling piano cadenza interrupts the antepenultimate variation's peroration.
