  • Abstract The term “ Cadenza ” first emerged in the 16th century. It evolved through the Renaissance, Baroque, and the early Classical period. It gradually refined from embellishment of the penultimate note before cadence into a section with complete structure among phrases, harmony and tonalities and finally established its own characteristic.                              
    As a representative musician and a master of improvisation in the Classical period, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Cadenza presented a special structure and techniques of his own. This article reviewed extensively the treatises by three Classical-period musicians Johann Joachim Quantz, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and Daniel Gottlob Türk then summarized the three-parts-section composing approach of Mozart’s Cadenza and discussed the applications in harmony, length, modulation and materials by citing Mozart’s three piano concerti, K414, K453 and K456. These three concerti were composed during Mozart's most matured and representative Vienna period. This article also explored the change of Mozart from being an employed court musician to a free-lance virtuoso and the metamorphosis of his audience from aristrocrat to middle and upper-class populace. The influence and impact of rising of amateur musicians on Mozart's composing works are also examined in this paper.
