Hi guys,

Have you ever listened to Mozart's Modulating Prelude (no KV number)? Minuet in D KV 355? The crazy passage in the Finale of Symphony No. 40? The first movement of String Quartet No. 19 "Dissonance"?

All of these seem to have Mozart in an anachronistic mindset. It seems like Mozart occasionally breaks free from his formula and ends up writing some unworldly stuff. Do you guys know of any more instances in Mozart's body of compositions which could be labeled as "progressive"?

Thanks
