Alto Flute Part, PDF $9.99

Mozart's Sonata in D Major, K.306 is by far the longest and showiest of the 'Mannheim' sonatas, with three large-scale movements, some quasi orchestral textures, much doubling, and brilliant passage work.  The first movement's development expands four transitional bars of the exposition into a far-reaching harmonic excursion.  The recapitulation begins with the second subject and returns to the first so late it amounts to a coda, the only instance of 'mirror' sonata-form in the Mannheim set.  In contrast, the second movement, Andante cantabile, has a structurally orthodox sonata form, compressing and ornamenting the themes in the recapitulation, as befits the tempo.  The finale is an elaborate rondo alternating between allegretto in 2/4 and allegro in 6/8. (excerpted from JWP's foreword to the edition)
