 Mozart composed this set of three Teutsche (German Dances) in the early months of 1791. The three dances of K. 605 are usually listed with the six dances of K. 600 and the four of K. 602 as Dreizehn deutsche Tänze (Thirteen German Dances). The pieces first appear on 12 February 1791 on Mozart's List of all my Works, and are the penultimate set of German Dances that Mozart would compose before his death on 5 December 1791.

  • Dance 3 Schlittenfahrt: This dance may have been written independently of the other 2, as it is very different in style. Schlittenfahrtmeans "Sleigh Ride"; the use of sleigh bells in the piece clearly emphasises this.
  • In the trio the flautists could play sleigh bells in lieu of the  quarter notes.
  •  Mozart wrote for 5 tuned sleigh bells
  • It is arranged here for wind dectet. Optional horn parts in C basso provided.(and bass)
  • Something different for your Christmas gig!
