Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (classical composer)

FIXME: (In dire need of cleanup)
Apparently, there are discrepancies within recording titles and work titles for Mozart's violin sonatas due to early usage of a practically obsolete numbering system (AMA, see this link). Some editors probably used the catalog numbers of works alreadyy existing on the mb database and copied it to the recording title, resulting in a lot of recordings with incorrect (obsolete) names, also resulting to inconsistent recording names. (Try doing a quick browse of the works in question, i.e., the affected works are probably Nos. 18/25-43, might vary depending on what catalog the work is using)

History:
The catalog old by Breitkopf & Härtel (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Werke) commonly referred to as 'AMA' had 43 Violin Sonatas. K. 55-61 were removed from the old catalog as they were deemed spurious (not by Mozart), resulting to a renumbering of the Violin Sonatas, refer to the table below:

See This link if you want to know how the works were exactly renumbered.

Old catalog -> New catalog | catalog no. (with link to work page)
24 -> 17 K. 296
25 -> 18 K. 301
26 -> 19 K. 302
27 -> 20 K. 303
28 -> 21 K. 304
29 -> 22 K. 305
30 -> 23 K. 306
31 -> 24 K. 376
32 -> 25 K. 377
33 -> 26 K. 378
34 -> 27 K. 379
35 -> 28 K. 380
36 -> 29 K. 402
37 -> 30 K. 403
38 -> 31 K. 404
39 -> 32 K. 454
40 -> 33 K. 481
41 -> 34 NONE NONE NONE NONE (I have no idea what happened to this)
42 -> 35 K. 526(duplicate works in pairs)
43 -> 36 K. 547

The above table shows the renumbering of the sonatas as a result of the removal of the 7 spurious works.

Currently, it is assumed that there are 36 violin sonatas. Note that there are other variants of the catalog of his violin sonatas, however, the most common numbering is the one above.

Additional Notes:
Born as: Joannes Chrisostomos Wolfgang Gottlieb Mozart
Baptized as: Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart

Mozart himself preferred the Italian-ized and French-ified versions of Gottlieb: Amadeo, Amadè and Amadé

Mozart actually only ever used the name as "Amadeus" three times among his letters and compositions, among at least 77 different variations of his name used throughout his lifetime.
