Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart was a key composer of the Classical Era. Mozart lived for only thirty-five years, being born in 1756 and dying in 1791. Even so, Mozart was able to write an incredible amount of music, over 600 known compositions, that are continued to be performed in concert stages today. His piano sonatas, concerti, fantasies, and variations are expected to be learned from any serious pianists.

Piano Sonatas II – Urtext of the New Mozart Edition (Volume 2)

Dover Edition

A very inexpensive edition of Mozart which also includes the fantasies. This edition was reprinted from the Breitkopf & Härtel‘s Complete Works. The Breitkopf and Hartel editions are known for not being very authentic however. Complaints from using this edition include small print, and “non-Mozartean” details such as the use of legato and phrasing.
