You Gotta Know These Works by Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is as central to the quiz bowl music canon as he is to the concert repertoire. While this list covers most of his more well-known pieces, two of his most famous operas (Don Giovanni and The Marriage of Figaro) were already covered in NAQT’s earlier article “You Gotta Know These Operas,” and therefore are not included here.

Mozart’s compositions are identified according to their number in the Köchel-Verzeichnis (Ludwig von Köchel’s catalogue of all of Mozart’s compositions), usually abbreviated “K.” or “KV” followed by the catalogue number.

The scores of the complete works of Mozart are available here, courtesy of the Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum and also on the IMSLP.
