In 1787, Mozart wrote Ein musikalischer Spaß. The piece ends with three complex chords that are notated as if being in 5 tonalities at the same time: F major, G major, A major, E-flat major, and B-flat. In Mozart's Chords, sections based on these three chords are alternated with episodes that contain different material. This formal procedure refers to the rondo form, which was often used by Mozart and his contemporaries.
