About this Piece

Written in a simple rounded binary form, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s  Adagio and Allegro in F minor, K. 594, explores fanfares and imitation. Originally written for a mechanical organ (or an instrument that “plays itself”), the music emphasizes clockwork precision, while challenging performers not using a mechanical organ to find their own expressive statement.
