Mozart is definitely not new to my ears, but this work sure is!

Mozart: Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots K35
The Obligation of the First and Foremost Commandment

If you’ve read the Wiki link above you know that there were three parts to this, and only the first (the only part by Mozart) survived. The sources I read vary, some saying he composed it at 11 and some 12.


  1. What a delightful piece! I know ‘Bastien und Bastienne’ from the same period but had no idea this existed. What else do you suppose we don’t know about?


  2. Oh I think this is IT, Bob! I think we now know everything!

    Or … um … not.
