This Sonata in D Major
is Something Else

Mozart Sonata KV 311
(Second Movement)

Your answer is correct! Mozart’s KV 311 sonata in D major (written in 1777) has this lovely second movement placed in the key of G major. With a tempo marking of andante con espressione, this piece innocently floats along and ends with right hand octaves playing pianissimo.

Decoys

Our friendly decoys today are Beethoven’s second movement of his Op. 10, No. 1 sonata and Haydn’s Menuet al Rovescio, from his Hob. XVI: 26 piano sonata. The Beethoven second movement, marked adagio molto and in the key of Ab major, has a good deal of decorative writing involving 64th notes.There are also some 128th notes… talk about detail!
