Tune of the Day: Menuetto by Mozart
from Divertimento No. 2, transcribed for flute and piano
This minuet is the second movement of the second of 5 Divertimentos for three basset horns composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from 1783 to 1785. These pieces were later rearranged for solo piano and published as the Six Viennese Sonatinas, which is why this piece is also known as the minuet from Sonatina No. 1 in C major.
