A Mozart Rondo [With Update]

On the Sunday portion of  the Tales classical weekends we like to go with something relaxing and a little softer. Some Mozart chamber music fits the bill. One of my favorite Mozart chamber music pieces is his piano quartet in G minor. I love the third movement finale of the quartet, which is in rondo form.

Please turn up the volume, sit back and relax and listen to some wonderful Mozart this Sunday.

Update: The Tales ombudsman, Mr. Bigmouth, has just informed us that this post missed recognition of a very important day in history. On this day, December 16, 1770 one of the greatest composers ever, Ludwig Van Beethoven, was born in Bonn, Germany.

In recognition of the great master's birthday Tales would like to add this video of the beautiful second movement from Beethoven's 7th symphony.  This was one of my mother's favorites.

Happy Birthday Ludwig on your 242nd birthday!
L.V. Beethoven: Symphony #7 in A Major, Movement 2, Allegretto:
