Song of the Day
The fourth piece we will hear by Mozart is called…
“Fantasia in C minor”
In Italian, “Fantasia” means “Fanstasy”. In music, a fantasia is a musical composition that doesn’t have as much of a strict form. In other words, there are no repeated sections like the rondo we learned about on Day 2.
Fantasia in C minor as a whole is not one of Mozart’s top 10 most well-known works, but it is a really impressive and enjoyable piece to listen to.
The entire piece is only about 11 minutes long, but I chosen to feature a small part known as the “Allegro” section. I really like this part because it is very playful and takes you on a trip through many different emotions. Just when you start to expect it to sound one way, it changes and sounds completely different.
How does this piece make you feel?
