Allegro molto, ca. 1767, purportedly by Signore Giovane Wolfgango Mozart.

A previously unknown sonata recently found in the attic of a Tyrolean brass band leader; if authentic, Mozart would have authored this piece when he was about ten years old.

The BBC has a video of the sonata being played by Florian Birsak on a piano which belonged to Mozart.
