Mother's Day Dedication #2
Mozart Sonata in C Major K 300h (330)
Dedicated to Mom

Mozart's Sonata in C Major (K 300h) is one of my favorites. I fell in love with it after purchasing a Lang Lang CD with this piece on it. I encourage you to buy a copy of that CD to hear a master musician at work :)

For those of you with finely trained ears, you will notice that this is actually in the key of F Major and not C Major. This recording is only the Andante cantabile section of the Sonata, and this section was written in the key of F Major.

I am dedicating this recording to my mom :) I chose this piece because Mozart is her favorite composer and this Sonata is just such a beautiful work. My mom is the one who originally taught me to play the piano and I owe my passion for music to her -- thanks mom!

Our Mother - author unknown
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together.
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of birds in the sunny weather;

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!
