Sonata in Bb Major K292
for bassoon and cello or bassoon and piano
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)- Austrian composer
I. Allegro
II. Andante
III. Rondo-Allegro

Did Mozart intend this work to be a duo for two bass instruments, or – as the simple basso-like manner of the second part suggests – a sonata for bassoon and keyboard instrument? We will probably never know the answer because the autograph has gone missing. This edition allows different instrumentation; it not only contains scores for the duo version but also one so it can be performed as a solo bassoon sonata, following the style of the time with a figured bass realization. And cellists – who are not blessed with many works by Mozart – will appreciate the version of this endearing work for cello and figured bass.This edition includes the standard duo for bassoon and cello (or two bassoons) and the version for solo bassoon and keyboard. Edited by Henrik Wiese, with a figured bass realization by Wolfgang Kostujak.
