Allegro in D major, K442


As well as the six complete Piano Trios, Mozart also wrote three separate trio movements, which he left unfinished. The D major Allegro was probably written around 1788-90. Mozart’s colleague the Austrian composer, historian and keyboard player Abbé Maximilian Stadler (1748- 1833) did the completion; short of being Mozart, he did a pretty good job. Mozart wrote 133 bars of the final 228 bars. D major is often used by Mozart for brilliance and strength. This Triosatz starts with a horn call, and then romps along in a spirit of festivity.
