MISCELLANEOUS Piano WORKS OF MOZART
Played by ETHEL BARTLETT
Fantasia and Fugue in C Rondo rpHE Fantasia is not a fully-developed piece;
it takes up one idea after another and treats it for a while, soon tossing it aside to express a new mood, maintaining a steady level of brilliant show-work, and keeping up expectation all the time.
The following Fugue, in three ' voices,' builds itself up solidly and steadily, in .a dignified spirit. This is a good opportunity to compare Mozart's manner as a fugue writer with Bach's. Mozart wrote few fugues, but he was clearly perfectly at home in this form.
Last of the week's examples of his sunny art, is a Rondo that he wrote when he was quite an old hand at composition—at twelve.
