Piano Sonata No. 10 (Mozart)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 10 in C major, K 330 (300h) is among one of the three works in the cycle of piano sonatas K.330-332 which was composed in 1783.
The sonata is in three movements:
I: Allegro moderato
The first movement typically takes about five minutes to eight minutes to perform. It is basically calm and quiet.
The movement is composed of a main theme which repeats twice, then a bridge and then a recapitulation of the main theme.
The main theme starts in key of C major, modulates to G major and stays in G major. The bridge is very intense and shows clever passages and modulations. In the recapitulation the main theme starts in C major, modulates to G major and then modulates back to C major.
II: Andante cantabile
The second movement takes between five and seven minutes to perform. The very end of the movement has been lost. Editors have resolved to employ a most "Mozart" idea to replace the lost autograph.
The third movement is the most energetic movement. Performance times range from three to five minutes. Use of arpeggios is prevalent throughout the piece. Like the second movement, the last few bars were lost in the autograph as well.
