description
As implied by the title Sonatina facile, this piano piece is an homage to Mozart’s famous Sonata in C major K. 545. Not only are the movement headings Allegro - Andante - Rondo identical, but Jörg Widmann also explores Mozart’s stylistic qualities, while playing with the ideals of Neoclassicism. In the outer movements, the themes from K. 545 appear repeatedly alongside typical figures from the Mozart’s time such as the famous Alberti bass in the accompaniment.

From time to time, the piece distances itself far from the concept of simplicity: the complexity of the piano texture and wild expressive, tempo and dynamic changes sporadically lead the “facile” ad absurbum.
