Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 17 in B major, K. 570, dated February 1789,[1] is a sonata in three movements:

  1. Allegro in 3
  2. Adagio (E major) in 4
  3. Allegretto in 2

A typical performance takes about 18 minutes.

There is an accompanying violin part of doubtful origin in many 1800 editions; the piano part is exactly the same as for piano solo. Neue Mozart-Ausgabe (NMA) describe it as an addition by either Johann Anton André or Johann Mederitsch [de].[2]
