The present edition comprises an arrangement of the familiar keyboard variations on the French song Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman (better known to the English-speaking world as Twinkle, twinkle, little star), which Mozart composed during a concert tour in Paris in 1778 as Ariette avec variations pour le clavecin ou Piano-Forte. Variation form was extremely popular at the time, providing as it did ample scope for any composer to display his ingenuity and technical proficiency. Since the original contains no tempo markings (with the exception of variations X I and XII), the present arrangement gives no strict indications of tempo either - a consideration which will anyway depend on the stage of proficiency reached by the two players.

> Diverse rhythms, melodies, and articulation will be enjoyed by players and listeners alike
> Equal compositional treatment of both voices ensures a pleasurable music-making experience for both players
