8 Variations on "Come un agnello", K.460/454a (Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus)
Mozart's authorship of all eight variations is now in doubt. See the miscellaneous comments below.

scan: score scanned at 600dpi (High Quality Scanning) This fragment it seems -is- the complete work; the "Complete work" above in other scans contains material no longer believed to be by Mozart. NMA (relevant sections of series 9 and the undigitized series 10 - 2 variations in the former, 8 variations in the latter rather as an Anhang, I think) seems to cover this- will have to have a look at the printed copy at the library...

Mozart's authorship of this work is uncertain Mozartforum (unsigned comment from P.Davydov, 25 Dec 2010)
- This seems to be true- see NMAfs/rpt - Listed under fragments in NMA-report. Series X, supplement, contains 8 variations- perhaps these are the dubious ones, while the 2 variations in the main portion are the two that Mozart is believed to have written? Because the "Acht Variationen" is now in the appendix, while the work in the main section is now "2 Variations". ... Curiouser and curiouser... - Schissel
