Published in 1782, Fantasy (KV 397, D minor) is characterized by changing moods and passages of an improvisatory character.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a an influential composer of the classical era. He composed over 600 works and is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers. His work “Fantasy” starts with a haunting introduction followed by a melancholy, aria-like theme. Toward the end, the melodrama is replaced with happiness.
Note: Mozart left the Fantasia incomplete. Missing bars have been added based on earlier thematic material, even though it is probably not as satisfying as the ending that the composer himself would have written.
