The aim is to Improvise on Mozart's Sonata for piano KV 300 in A Major (the one that finishes with the movement alla Turca)
Classical trained musicians tend to read from the score; however it might be useful from time to time to think on the compositional process and the conventions of the style in order to be more familiar with the style and even being able to improvise.
Classical composers had a clear picture of the form and had a clear template before starting a composition. In a way, they considered the score as a blank paper to fill in with groups of bars playing a role. These groups of bars are usually multiples of 4 and 8. The content of these bars varies depending of the form and the piece, but in the first movement of this sonata there is a clear sequential process that relates the first 8 and thefollowing 8 bars. This is the starting point. After that, we introduce ornaments and start varying the melody. The aim is after all to have fun playing Mozart...
