Tune of the Day: Allegro by Mozart
from Sonata No. 5 in C major
Today's piece is the first movement of Mozart's Sonata No. 5 for flute (or violin) and piano, K. 14. The eight-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart received a commission for the sonatas K. 10–15, Op. 3, from Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, wife of King George III of the United Kingdom, while he was in London with his family.
Thanks to Rachel for suggesting this piece!
