Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Eine kleine Gigue in G Major was written in Leipzig in 1789, after Mozart was
inspired to write a piece to honor the late Kapellmeister of that city - Johann
Sebastian Bach. Mozart's work contains a
mix of the intervals Bach used in fugal themes and, like
Bach, uses three voices. The tonal
scheme of the piece is tonic-dominant-tonic, and it also visits its parallel
minor key briefly in the second section - characteristics of the Classical
period. Thus, Mozart masterfully
intermingles Bach with the structures of his own time. Junghwa
