Unknown Mozart Improvisation?
the Mozart fans and music history fans out there, here is an
interesting piece of music that we recently discovered that
was published in Baltimore
in 1874. The editor of this piece claims that this music was
improvised by Mozart, and later written down by one of the listeners.
An interesting story to say the least. See below
how to order the sheet music for this unique piece
on the front cover of the sheet music states:
incentive to this lovely musical thought of the great
master came on the occasion of a visit of his to a friend's
family. After a pleasant trip upon an adjacent lake, which
lay in the midst on a landscape of exquisite beauty, Mozart
opened the spinet of the lady of the house, and inspired
by the noble impressions of nature's magnificence during
their water party, he sought, in the improvisation of
this little composition to give expression to his feelings.
The lovely undulating movement of the melody bears witness
of the extremely happy mood of our great master. His aristocratic
lady friend, herself a finished artiste, was so enraptured
with this charming little production of a happy moment,
that she life long retained it in her memory. Through
her it descended to her children and grandchildren, and
at last to an English lady, although a note of it had
never been written down down. Through the kindness of
the latter lady, the editor was fortunate enough to be
able to write it down, and place it before the public
in its present form."
