List of compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a selective list of the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, listed by genre. For a complete
and chronologically ordered list, see Kchel catalogue.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a prolific composer and wrote in many genres. Perhaps his bestadmired work is in opera, the piano concerto and sonata, the symphony, and in the string
quartet and string quintet. Mozart also wrote much work for solo piano, other forms of chamber
music, masses and other religious music, and numerous dances,divertimentos, and other forms of
light entertainment.

How Mozart's compositions are listed[edit]

The indication "K." or "KV" refers to "Kchel Verzeichnis" (Kchel catalogue), i.e. the (more
or less) chronological (i.e. by composition date) catalogue of Mozart's works byLudwig von
Kchel. This catalog has been amended several times, leading to ambiguity over some KV
numbers (see e.g. Symphony No. 25).

The compositions of Mozart listed below are grouped thematically, i.e. by type of
composition. Not all thematic groups of Mozart's works have a separate numbering that is
generally accepted: Kchel only numbers symphonies (1 to 41), piano concertos (1 to 27,
leaving out some early transcriptions by Mozart) and a few other groups. On the other hand, for
most chamber music and vocal music there is no such numbering (or at least no generally
accepted one).

Only relatively few of Mozart's compositions have opus numbers, as not so many of his
compositions were published during his lifetime, so numbering by opus number proves quite
impractical for Mozart compositions.

Main article: List of symphonies by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart's symphonic production covers a 24 year interval, from 1764 to 1788. According to most
recent investigations, Mozart wrote not just the 41 symphonies reported in traditional editions, but up
to 68 complete works of this type. However, by convention, the original numbering has been
retained, and so his last symphony is still known as "No. 41". Some of the symphonies (K. 297, 385,
550) were revised by the author after their first versions.

Childhood symphonies (17641771)[edit]

These are the numbered symphonies from Mozart's early childhood.

Symphony No. 1 in E-flat major, K. 16

Symphony No. 2 in B-flat major, K. 17 (spurious, attributed to Leopold Mozart)

Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, K. 18 (spurious, by Carl Friedrich Abel)

Symphony No. 4 in D major, K. 19

Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, K. 22

Symphony No. 6 in F major, K. 43

Symphony No. 7 in D major, K. 45

Symphony No. 8 in D major, K. 48

Symphony No. 9 in C major, K. 73/75a

Symphony No. 10 in G major, K. 74

Symphony No. 11 in D major, K. 84/73q

Symphony No. 12 in G major, K. 110/75b

Symphony No. 13 in F major, K. 112

There are also several "unnumbered" symphonies from this time period. Many of them were given
numbers past 41 (but not in chronological order) in an older collection of Mozart's works (MozartWerke, 18771910, referred to as "GA"), but newer collections refer to them only by their entries in
the Kchel catalogue. Many of these cannot be definitively established as having been written by
Mozart (see here).

Symphony in F major, K. 75 (GA 42)

Symphony in F major, K. 76/42a (GA 43: doubtful)

Symphony in D major, K. 81/73l (GA 44: doubtful)

Symphony in D major, K. 95/73n (GA 45)

Symphony in C major, K. 96/111b (GA 46)

Symphony in D major, K. 97/73m (GA 47)

Symphony in F major, K. 98/Anh.C 11.04 (GA 48/56: doubtful)

Symphony in B-flat major, K. Anh. 214/45b (GA 55: doubtful)

Symphony in B-flat major, K. Anh. 216/74g/Anh.C 11.03 (GA 54: doubtful)

Symphony in G major, "Old Lambach", K. Anh. 221/45a

Symphony in F major, K. Anh. 223/19a

Symphony in A minor, "Odense", K. Anh. 220/16a (doubtful)

Salzburg-era symphonies (17711777)[edit]

These symphonies are sometimes subcategorized as "Early" (17711773) and "Late" (17731777),
and sometimes subcategorized as "Germanic" (with minuet) or "Italian" (without minuet). None of
these were printed during Mozart's lifetime.
Although not counted as "symphonies" the three Divertimenti K. 136138, in 3-movement Italian
overture style, are sometimes indicated as "Salzburg Symphonies" too.

Symphony No. 14 in A major, K. 114 (1771)

Symphony No. 15 in G major, K. 124 (1772)

Symphony No. 16 in C major, K. 128 (1772)

Symphony No. 17 in G major, K. 129 (1772)

Symphony No. 18 in F major, K. 130 (1772)

Symphony No. 19 in E-flat major, K. 132 (1772)

Symphony No. 20 in D major, K. 133 (1772)

Symphony No. 21 in A major, K. 134 (1772)

Symphony No. 22 in C major, K. 162 (1773)

Symphony No. 23 in D major, K. 181/162b (1773)

Symphony No. 24 in B-flat major, K. 182/173dA (1773)

Symphony No. 25 in G minor, K. 183/173dB (1773)

Symphony No. 26 in E-flat major, K. 184/161a (1773)

Symphony No. 27 in G major, K. 199/161b (1773)

Symphony No. 28 in C major, K. 200/189k (1774)

Symphony No. 29 in A major, K. 201/186a (1774)

Symphony No. 30 in D major, K. 202/186b (1774)

There are also several "unnumbered" symphonies from this time period that make use of music from
Mozart's operas from the same time period. They are also given numbers past 41.

Symphony in D major, K. 111+(120/111a) ("No. 48")

Symphony in D major, K. (126+(161/163))/141a ("No. 50")

Symphony in D major, K. 196+(121/207a) ("No. 51")

Symphony in C major, K. 208+(102/213c) ("No. 52")

Symphony in D major, K. 135+61h

There are also three symphonies from this time period that are based on three of Mozart's

Symphony in D major, K. 204 (based on the Serenade No. 5)

Symphony in D major, K. 250 (based on the "Haffner" serenade)

Symphony in D major, K. 320 (based on the "Posthorn" serenade)

Late symphonies (17781791)[edit]

Symphony No. 31 in D major, "Paris", K. 297/300a (1778)

Symphony No. 32 in G major, "Overture in the Italian style", K. 318 (1779)

Symphony No. 33 in B-flat major, K. 319 (1779)

Symphony No. 34 in C major, K. 338 (1780)

Symphony No. 35 in D major, "Haffner", K. 385 (1782)

Symphony No. 36 in C major, "Linz", K. 425 (1783)

Symphony No. 37 in G major, K. 444 (1783)

For years this was categorized as a Mozart symphony, but later scholarship determined that
it was actually composed by Michael Haydn (Symphony No. 25), and Mozart wrote only the
slow introduction for it.

Symphony No. 38 in D major, "Prague", K. 504 (1786)

The three final symphonies (Nos. 3941) were completed in about three months in 1788. It is quite
likely that he hoped to publish these three works together as a single opus, although actually they
remained unpublished until after his death. One or two of them might have been played in public in
Leipzig in 1789.

Symphony No. 39 in E-flat major, K. 543 (1788)

Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550 (1788)

Symphony No. 41 in C major, "Jupiter", K. 551 (1788)

Piano concertos[edit]
Main article: Mozart piano concertos
Mozart's concertos for piano and orchestra are numbered from 1 to 27. The first fournumbered
concertos are early works. The movements of these concertos are arrangements of keyboard
sonatas by various contemporary composers (Raupach, Honauer, Schobert, Eckart, C. P. E. Bach).
There are also three unnumbered concertos, K. 107, which are adapted from piano sonatas by J. C.
Bach. Concertos 7 and 10 are compositions for three and two pianos respectively. The remaining
twenty-one are original compositions for solo piano and orchestra. Among them, fifteen were written
in the years from 1782 to 1786, while in the last five years Mozart wrote just two more piano

Rondo for piano and orchestra in D major, K. 382

Rondo for piano and orchestra in A major, K. 386

Violin concertos[edit]
Mozart's five violin concertos were written in Salzburg around 1775. They are notable for the beauty
of their melodies and the skillful use of the expressive and technical characteristics of the instrument,
though Mozart probably never went through all the violin possibilities that others
(e.g. Beethoven and Brahms) did after him. (Alfred Einsteinnotes that the violin concerto-like
sections in the serenades are more virtuosic than in the works titled Violin Concertos.)

Violin Concerto No. 1 in B-flat major, K. 207 (1775)

Violin Concerto No. 2 in D major, K. 211 (1775)

Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major, K. 216 (1775)

Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major, K. 218 (1775)

Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K. 219 (1775)

Mozart also wrote a concertone, an adagio and two stand-alone rondos for violin and orchestra.

Concertone in C major, for Two Violins and Orchestra, K. 190/186E (1774)

Adagio for violin and orchestra in E major, K. 261 (1776)

Rondo for violin and orchestra in B-flat major, K. 269/261a (between 1775 and 1777)

Rondo for violin and orchestra in C major, K. 373 (1781)

In addition, there are three works that are spuriously attributed to Mozart.

Violin Concerto in E-flat major, K. 268/365a/Anh.C 14.04 ("No. 6") (1780) (attributed to
Johann Friedrich Eck)[1]
Violin Concerto in D major, "Kolb", K. 271a/271i ("No. 7") (1777)
Violin Concerto in D major, "Adlade", K. Anh. 294a/Anh.C 14.05 (actually written byMarius

Horn concertos[edit]
Main article: Horn Concertos (Mozart)
Arguably the most widely played concertos for horn, the four Horn Concertos are a major part of
most professional horn players' repertoire. They were written for Mozart's lifelong friend Joseph
Leutgeb. The concertos (especially the fourth) were written as virtuoso vehicles that allow the soloist
to show a variety of abilities on the valveless horns of Mozart's day.

The Horn Concertos are characterized by an elegant and humorous dialogue between the soloist
and the orchestra. Many of the autographs contain jokes aimed at the dedicatee.

Horn Concerto No. 1 in D major, K. 412 (1791)

Horn Concerto No. 2 in E-flat major, K. 417 (1783)

Horn Concerto No. 3 in E-flat major, K. 447 (c. 17847)

Horn Concerto No. 4 in E-flat major, K. 495 (1786)

There are some other unfinished Mozart works for horn:

Horn Concerto, K. 370b+371 in E-flat major (1781)

Horn Concerto, K. 494a in E major (c. 17856)
