Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt
Alto Flute Part, PDF $4.99
Mozart's Sonata in E-flat Major, K.302 has two movements, an Allegro and a rondo Andante grazioso. This ebullient sonata opens with a striking call to attention, much used later, which descends on the tonic triad but alternates half and quarter notes in 3/4 time, thus avoiding both square rhythm and repeated root positions on every down beat. The theme which follows is contrastingly gentle. The second movement offers a firmly forward-moving theme whose immediate repeat and final returns are variously and charmingly re-orchestrated. (excerpted from JWP's foreword to the edition)
