    What a great composition. So emotional and all in a major key.

    Any thoughts?

    It's not all in a major key!

    A major and D major.

    The middle section of the Third Movement (Rondo) which starts at bar 137 actually commences in F♯Minor although it does eventually modulate back to A Major.

    Indeed, not to mention other minor contrasts throughout.

    Yes ... why I am annoyed that there is no link.

    If I know Mozart like I think I know Mozart, and that is as a very casual observer (as you can tell from the link request) - yet an astute one, I would say it is emotionally neutral.

    Just for you Eureka! As it should be, played on the instrument it was written for by, IMO, the best clarinettist of this age. Enjoy.

    Definitely not emotionally neutral.

    Thx RQ!.
    BTW I do find virtually all of Mozart emotionally neutral! I don't think it's just me, so there is something about Mozart, compared to Beethoven say, that renders the music to be less emotionally charged. That is not to say that there are not people who can get an emotional rise out of the fellow.

    His music has a more subtle sort of emotional expression so I think I know where you're coming from. Still beautifully crafted music though.
