W.A.Mozart, Sonata for Piano Nr.11 A-dur K.331, Variation 1

Mozart’s Piano Sonata K.331 has totally 6 variations.  This is the first variation.

As I a bit explained yesterday it was said that K.331 sonata had been written during his staying in Paris.  However, A recent study shows that this was composed in 1783, 100 years memorial after The Battle of Vienna.  “Alla Turca”—well-known the 3rd movement of the sonata seems to be reflected to the trend.
