Description: Mozart, Six German Dances KV 536 No. 2. Here’s one you can call English, German or Austrian! In the 1840’s, Michael Turner of West Sussex in England included this in one of his manuscript books of folk dances and tunes, but without attribution. Most likely he heard in concert Mozart’s “Six German Dances”, written in 1788. This version is almost identical to Mozart’s, with minor changes to make it similar to the most common versions being played since the 1980’s, but changed from “G” to “D”.
Key: D Major
