Accompaniment for Eine Kleine Nachtmusikby vlniston June 7th, 2012
Students love to play Eine Kleine, so an arrangement for violin and piano is welcome. However, the violin part is merely the first violin part of the quartet, so nothing is really new here. I was hoping some of the melodic material in the second violin part would be included. The first and fourth movements are also spread out over 4 pages, with nowhere to turn them. I will use the quartet version without page turns with the piano part.

Good arrangement except the contrasting middle section was a little awkward and might be difficult for a student.
What more to say about Eine Kleine Nachtmusik....?by Alan Donaldon June 25th, 2008
It's Mozart & therefore, whilst often appearing easy on the printed page, is probably, for me, the most difficult composer of all to get right technically & to interpret.
It is so well known that it's easy to forget that this serenade is a masterpiece and, like all music really - well known or not - should be approached each time it is played in a fresh & novel way. Take nothing for granted - ever - with Mozart but listen to & play this piece anew each time & try always to appreciate it for the great work it is.
