Background: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was one of the most prolific composers of all time. In 1862, the German musicologist Ludwig von Köchel made a chronological list of Mozart’s musical work. This list is the source of the Köchel numbers, or “K numbers”, that now accompany the titles of Mozart’s pieces (e.g., Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat major, K. 364). The table below gives the Köchel numbers and composition dates of 17 of Mozart’s works.
