According to some scientific studies, listening to Mozart's music is able to heal people from a wide variety of ailments thanks to the influence of certain frequencies to the central nervous system. This phenomenon is called “The Mozart Effect". However, there are the same number of studies that deny the existence of this effect. Either way, my goal is not to prove or disprove the existence of this hypothesis, for me it is more important to understand what is behind the belief in the “Mozart Effect”. Moreover, why is Mozart's music connected with health, a sense of balance and inner harmony for us?

In the Sonata in A minor, especially in its finale, I tried to bring the piano sounding to the sound of harpsichord.
