Subj: [kl] Mozart Quintet Question for Dan and Tony

=46or Dan and Tony -

I've re-read the discussion of repeats in the Mozart Quintet but am
unclear on whether you would repeat the second half of the first
movement. Repeat=3F Or no repeat=3F

If you would repeat, and observing Dan's distinction between
ornamentation and invention, where is invention possible in the second

The descending arpeggio figure from the clarinet's first entrance
becomes the subject of a development by the strings, with the clarinet
doing only simple ascending and descending arpeggios. It's tempting to
try something different there, but the texture is so thick that, for me,
it would be difficult to invent anything that wouldn't make the passage

I'm also unsure about the rest of the second half. Mozart already makes
variations from the first half, and there are none of the semi-blank
sections that Mozart left, for example, in his piano concertos, where he
merely left a few guidelines and made it up as he went along during the

And to re-ask the question, if I find no opportunities for invention in
the second half, does that mean that at least when I perform it, I
shouldn't amek the repeat=3F
