Related Works Sonata in D major and Fugue in C minor for 2 Pianos*
Extra Information *Pasticcio arrangement of two works, possibly inspired by Edwin Hughes' collection above.
  1. Sonata for 2 Pianos in D major, K.448/375a of 1781
  2. Fugue in C minor, K.426 of 1783.

Descarries' arrangement transposed the Fugue to D minor, which makes it into a more plausible item to be performed in one sitting than Hughes' 1926 collection - which simply contains two works that Mozart composed for two pianos.
