YGK Works by Mozart

One of Mozart’s best-known pieces is the ____________ _______ __________ from his Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major, K. 331. That sonata begins with a theme and variations that inspired Max Reger to write his Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Mozart. “Rondo Alla Turca”
Of Mozart’s first 38 symphonies, the _____________ ___ ________ __________________(No. 25, K. 183) is the only one in a minor key “Little” G minor symphony
The ____________ _____________________ (No. 31 in D major, K. 297), written for that city, begins with a fast upward D major scale that can be classified as a “Mannheim rocket,” a popular opening device for symphonies. “Paris” Symphony
The libretto, by Emanuel Schikaneder, who took the role of Papageno at the premier, incorporates many Masonic elements (both Schikaneder and Mozart were Masons). The Magic Flute
Tamino is saved from a serpent by three maidens of the Queen of the Night, but Papageno, a bird-catcher, claims credit. The Magic Flute
The Queen of the Night, who has two very difficult arias (“O zittre nicht, mein lieber Sohn” and “Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen”), attempts to stop Tamino and Pamina from joining Sarastro, but is magically exiled with Monostatos. The Magic Flute
Both are shown their counterparts—Pamina and Papagena—but must face several trials at the hands of the sorcerer Sarastro, who heads a cult of Isis and Osiris and is assisted by Monostatos, a treacherous Moor. The Magic Flute
Mozart's last composition; anonymously commissioned by the Count von Walsegg. Mozart died before he could finish it; many musicians have completed it, including Mozart’s student Franz Xaver Süssmayr, and more recently Richard Maunder and Robert Levin. Requiem
The scoring is notably for low-timbered instruments, omitting oboes and flutes and substituting basset horns for clarinets. The theme of the “Kyrie” was taken from “And With His Stripes We Are Healed,” a chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Requiem
After the dramatic “Dies Irae,” the “Tuba Mirum” begins with a trombone solo. Requiem
The circumstances surrounding Mozart’s death remain mysterious, and led to the (unfounded) rumor that ___________ __________murdered him Antonio Salieri
The Salieri murderer myth gave rise to the ____________________ ______________ play Aleksandr Pushkin
The play Mozart and Salieri, inspired a Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov opera and Peter Shafer’s ______________, which became an Academy Award-winning film. Amadeus (Rock Me, Amadeus!)
This opera is, along w/ The Marriage of Figaro & Don Giovanni, one of Mozart’s collaborations w/ Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte. Così fan tutte (roughly, They’re All Like That)
Soldiers Guglielmo and Ferrando, who love sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, respectively, brag about the fidelity of their fiancées Così fan tutte (roughly, They’re All Like That)
in a coffeeshop, Don Alfonso makes a bet that he can make the sisters fall in love with other men in one day. Don Alfonso disguises the two men as Albanians after bribing the sisters’ maid Despina Così fan tutte (roughly, They’re All Like That)
at first they resist (see Fiordiligi’s aria “Come Scoglio”), but after Dorabella and Guglielmo trade a medallion and a heart-shaped locket, Fiordiligi is seduced by Ferrando. Così fan tutte (roughly, They’re All Like That)
In the end, the sisters “almost” marry the wrong husbands, and only realize they’ve been tricked when the two men return to the stage half in disguise, half out. Così fan tutte (roughly, They’re All Like That)
While often called an opera, this Mozart piece, is, like The Magic Flute, actually a Singspiel with spoken dialogue (as opposed to sung recitatives). The Abduction from the Seraglio
The action takes place at the home of the Ottoman Pasha Selim, and the music uses “Janissary” military instruments associated with “Turkish” music. Belmonte is trying to rescue his lover Konstanze from the Seraglio (harem) The Abduction from the Seraglio
Belmonteis assisted by Pedrillo, his servant, while Osmin works for the Pasha. In the end, the Pasha releases Belmonte and Konstanze, much to Osmin’s chagrin. The Abduction from the Seraglio
Famous arias include Osmin’s “O, wie will ich triumphieren” and Konstanze’s incredibly difficult “Martern aller Arten.” According to one story, Joseph II accused it of having “too many notes.” The Abduction from the Seraglio
