Quartet in D Major, K. 311

Mozart, WA

International Music Company presents Mozart's Quartet in D Major, K. 311 for flute (or violin), violin, viola, and cello edited by Robert Stallman.

'The theme of the opening movement is clearly related to that which opens the Sonata, also in D, K. 284. However, whereas the earlier sonata evokes an orchestra, this one sparkles with characteristic keyboard ebullience. (This thematic similarity could be an example of Mozart s response to an inner repertoire of 'D-major ideas.') is movement also provides another example of the composer s flexible approach to his Recapitulations. In this case the two main themes are in reverse order.In the glorious second movement, a highlight of his entire oeuvre is the aching, extended second theme that Mozart manages to stretch like a silk strand to its breaking point, supported by harmonies that look forward to Schumann. The third movement is a brilliant rondo, with its uninhibited gaiety that is interrupted by an anxious middle theme that Mozart discards after only one hearing, as if to say, 'Enough of this darkness. Let there be light.' And the light returns.'
