Program Notes

The Sleigh Ride was composed in 1791 (dated February 12) as part of the Three German Dances (K. 605) for chamber orchestra. The original score consists of two sections in standard minuet and trio form of the Classical period followed by an extended coda section. Specifically, Mozart entitled the trio section as "the sleighride" (Die Schlittenfarht) but the entire work is commonly referenced by this designation. Its programmatic nature and lively rhythms make it an excellent selection for winter concerts.
