This chapter considers all of Mozart's variations sets, beginning with his Eight Variations on a Dutch song, K. 24, and ending with late sets such as the “Duport” Variations, K. 573, and the Eight Variations on “Ein Weib ist das herrlichste Ding”, K. 613. Improvisatory elements and structural features of the variation process such as subdivisions in rhythm are explored. The chapter also addresses Mozart's earlier childhood pieces, the early wellsprings of his musical creativity, his modulating preludes, and many individual pieces, especially the Rondo in A Minor, K. 511, and Adagio in B minor, K. 540.

Keywords:   improvisation, variation, rhythmic subdivision, childhood pieces, creativity, modulating preludes, Rondo in A Minor, K. 511
