Adagio and Fugue in C minor, K546

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

SATB Saxophone Quartet

Adagio and Fugue in C minor, K546 by Mozart – string quartet transcription for saxophone quartet SATB. This is Mozart’s String Quartet, No. 27. This SATB saxophone quartet transcription is complete and in the original key of C minor. There are only two movements.

Mozart dated his String Quartet No. 27, Adagio and Fugue in C minor “Vienna, 26 June 1788”- the prolific summer when he composed his last three symphonies. The K546 fugue is a transcription of the Fugue in C minor for two pianos, K. 426, from 1783. The adagio (not part of K. 426) is written in 3/4, the fugue in cut time with its tempo marked allegro. The syncopated rhythms of the adagio moving into the quick moving counterpoint of the fugue gives the piece the quality of a French overture. The dark sonority of C minor and its frantic ending give the fugue an anxious and ominous feel.
