Mozart: The Adagio and Allegro in f minor

Mozart: The Adagio and Allegro in f minor

Today’s Midday Mozart has a curious history.  The Adagio and Allegro in f minor was catalogued as being written for an organ and a clock.  But that actually referred to an instrument that was a mechanical organ.  If it was anything like the one Haydn had it was rectangular with a spinning barrel that had the kind of scroll like a player piano to help crank out the music.  There was also a type of bellows on the Haydn instrument.  But today on Midday Mozart, we’re going to hear a performance for piano four-hands. 

Tune in at noon to hear Midday Mozart on Classical WSMR 89.1, Sarasota and WUSF 89.7 HD-2 to hear the Adagio and Allegro.
