This excerpt exposes Mozart’s ability to confuse the listener. Measures 25 through halfway through 27 are very similar. However, the second half of measure 27 changes direction, and the mixture chord gives the listener a sense of uncanny sounds. These couple of measures, however, prepare the listener for chromatic bass line measures 29 and 30. Measures 25-27 somewhat prepare the listener to the mixture chord because of the accidentals. But Mozart always tends to have a sense of quickness in his writing. Before the listener knows it, he or she is listening to a completely new and different phrase. Despite the length of the excerpt , Mozart still managed to place a sense of extreme emotion gliding through only a couple of measures.
