Piano Sonata No.8

by Mozart
Advanced Difficulty
A minor
The A minor sonata is the first of only two Mozart piano sonatas to have been composed in a minor key (the other being the No. 14 in C minor, K. 457). Written around the time of the death of Mozart's mother, it is one of the darkest of his sonatas. The last movement in particular has an obsessive, haunted quality about it, heightened near the end by the interruption of the relentless drive to the conclusion by repeated and chilling quiet falling passages.
