Mozart - Brahms - Ravel
Mami Shikimori

Mozart's Rondo in A minor K511 was composed in the spring of 1787 and it is one of his great mature works. The work is permeated by the feeling of sorrow, the mood quite similar to that of Pamina's G minor Aria from the opera 'The Magic Flute', which woebegone Pamina sings about lost love. The form of Rondo in A minor is A-B-A-C-A-coda, two episodes in major keys appearing between the main sections. The opening theme goes thorough series of transformations during the course of the piece and it is at its most agonised and anguished when it appears for the final time and it leads to the haunting coda which refers back to one of the earlier episodes.
