This chapter discusses all of Mozart's pieces for piano duet and two pianos, including the Sonata in C Major, K. 19d, which is shown to be of doubtful authenticity. Topics addressed include characteristic features of texture, dialogue, biographical context, compositional modeling and influence, as well as connections to works in other genres. Two unusual late works in F minor that are known in piano-duet arrangements are also considered: the pieces for clockwork organ, K. 594, and K. 608.

Keywords: piano duet; duo piano; authenticity; texture; dialogue; clockwork organ
