Hi all,
I haven't been around for a while, but have a bit of time on my hands at the moment and thinking about learning a new Mozart piece. I'm looking for something a bit broody and wistful at the same time, and I came across the Adagio from K488 which seems to fit the bill. Has anyone here played it and if so, how did you find it? Is this sheet music arranged for piano solo any good (or do you have an alternative recommendation)?

Any advise or alternative suggestions welcome.

Thanks,
Cathryn

Hi Cathryn
You can’t go wrong with the Mozart!
Another option is the Bach transcription of Marcello’s oboe concerto (BWV 974)

It's new to me, Cathryn, but I like it! The sheet music looks decent, and not to crazy difficult. I'd say go for it!

Thanks Dogperson. I have mostly completed the BWV 974, I jumped onto it when someone posted on here recently. It's heavenly, and the recording you posted is sublime, thanks!
I'll see how I go with the Adagio - how is your Chopin Nocture coming along?

Have a great day.
Cathryn
PS not sure why my markup isn't working, sorry.

Hi Cathryn
I’m not working on any Chopin nocturnes right now... all the ones I started are in good shape. Right now, other composers... . Then I’ll head back to Chopin😝😝

It's a beautiful piece, and I'm almost certain I've heard it before. Probably in some movie smile
