Abstract: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, at the age of fourteen, composed an extensive obbligato horn solo in 'Lungi da te, mio bene,' within the opera Mitridate, re di Ponto, K. 87 (1770) based on a text by Vittorio Amadeo Cigna-Santi. The purpose of the study was to create a performance edition of 'Lungi da te, mio bene' with piano reduction. A secondary purpose was to compare the similarities of hand horn performance techniques in the obbligato horn solo from Mitridate to other works written for the horn by Mozart.
