Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 15 in F major, KV 533 (494) (finished 3 January 1788) is a sonata in three movements:

  1. Allegro
  2. Andante in B-flat major
  3. Rondo: Allegretto

A typical performance takes about 23 minutes.

The Rondo was originally a stand-alone piece composed by Mozart in 1786 (Rondo No. 2, K. 494 in the Köchel catalogue). In 1788, Mozart wrote the first two movements of K. 533 and incorporated a revised version of K. 494 as the finale, having lengthened it in order to provide a more substantial counterpart to the other two movements.[1]
