Tune of the Day: Romanze

from “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

This famous romance is the second movement of Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major, K. 525, more commonly known as Eine kleine Nachtmusik (“a small serenade”). Mozart wrote it in 1787, while working on the second act of his Don Giovanni. It is not known why it was composed.

This second movement is marked “Andante”, thus contrasting with the lively “Allegro” of the first movement. It is in a “section rondo form”, and is similar to the sonata rondo form (A–B–A–C–A). The first theme is graceful and lyrical, and is followed by a more rhythmical second theme. Then the first theme returns, followed by the third theme, which is darker than the first two and includes a touch of C minor. A restatement of the first theme returns to finish the movement.
