Gran partita, K. 361 : a facsimile of the holograph in the Whittall Foundation Collection by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

5 editions published between 1781 and 2008 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seven movements consist of a sonata-allegro with an adagio introduction, a minuet and double trio, an adagio, another minuet and double trio featuring an obvious ländler, a tripartite Romance, a theme and variations with a curious interruption, and a spritely finale, totaling nearly an hour of music. Its composition date remains in dispute: it could have been as early as 1780, although it was not performed in any form until March 23, 1784, when it was presented at a benefit concert put on by famous clarinetist Anton Stadler. This is the only known performance during Mozart's lifetime, and it only included four of the movements! Thankfully, the manuscript has survived in complete form to the present day, and it has become a cornerstone of the repertoire for chamber winds
