Some sites only give you the first movement. This one had them all.

A beautiful piece, really beautiful, should be part of any basic repertoires.
Appreciate your service!

Thanks for making it so easy to find and print sheet music. Saves us a trip to the local music store and keeps us from having to purchase a whole book in order to get just one piece.

'Il Semplice' – A sonata for beginners
by Alan Fryon March 24th, 2009
Mozart wrote this piano sonata in 1788, three years before his death in 1791. He called it 'il semplice', a sonata for beginners. At that time young Johann Hummel was staying with the Mozarts in Vienna. He came to live with them in 1786, aged 8 and stayed for two years during which Mozart taught him for free. He must have thought very highly of the boy because he was extremely busy at the time, particularly with the two last symphonies (40 &41), a violin sonatina and a quintet, and, to say the least, he was pressed for money. It seems likely this little piano sonata might have been written for Johann Hummel as a going-away present when he left them aged 10. Quite a difficult piece for a 10 year old boy it must be said. But it is full of charm and grace and presents a variety of interesting modestly difficult technical challenges for the pianist.

Easy or medium
by anonymouson May 19th, 2008
I love the music and I think this piece should be medium or at least easy/medium, I can play some of the medium rated songs on this web page, and I can play this one as well, and I think those have the same difficulty level than this one.
Review: As is the case with nearly all Mozart pieces - it is hard not to fall in love with this one - its sheer simplicity and charm. When I play it I try to immitate the interpretation of Mitsuko uchida which I heard once on the radio. I think she managed to reveal the full artistic value of this piece through her delicate touch, clarity of tone and strict adherence to the rythm. Go on - buy this music; you do not need to be a virtuoso to play this Sonata well what is needed is just a little sensitivity.

It was very easy to use. No problems!!!

Why this delightful work was ever called the 'Sonata Facile' is a mystery. Most dilettante pianists will confirm that it isn't all that 'facile', and though a standard item in the amateur pianist's repertoire, the K545 is, in fact, a deceptively tricky piece to master.
The first movement is the one everybody knows and loves. It starts in C Major, later flowing into a passage in F major. The Alberti bass in the left hand is easy enough to execute ; however, the trills and scales (in both hands)are not.
The second movement starts in G major, and is perhaps the easiest to play acceptably well. However,the third movement is definitely fraught with little traps. Its bouncy tempo and the fact that sections of it are played with much gusto and volume, make it almost a work apart.
This little sonata epitomizes the grace and charm of the best of eighteenth century salon music. For the most magical rendition, listen to Mitsuko uchida's interpretation.
