Coda Mozart's Sonata in C Major, K. 309, I, mm. 148-155 About this sound Play [1].

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 7 in C major, K 309 (284b) (1777) is a piano sonata in three movements:

  1. Allegro con spirito
  2. Andante un poco adagio
  3. Rondo (allegretto grazioso)

A typical performance takes about 16 minutes.

The work was composed during a journey to Mannheim and Paris in 1777-78. The sonata was complete in a few days in early November 1777. The andante movement is a "portrait" of Rose Cannabich (his pupil), the 15-year-old daughter of the Mannheim Kapellmeister Christian Cannabich.[2] Upon reviewing a copy of the manuscript, Mozart's father Leopold wrote that it was "a strange composition. It has something in it of the 'rather artificial' Mannheim style, but so very little that your own good style is not spoilt".[3]
