Note: Gallimathis Musicum is a quodlibet from the hand of the very young Mozart. Many of its movements are excellent for introducing students chamber music. For professionals, this pastorella can be used for prelude, meditation, or soft background music, and its phrase structure allows for various stopping points. The violin 1 part is playable on flute or oboe. Includes alternative parts for violin 2 and viola.
