The required price for a handwritten score of 1772 was set at $ 166,000-220,000.
Sotheby said on Thursday that two miniatures composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart when he was 16 will be auctioned in Paris.
According to the auction house, since 1772, hand-written scores have been set at 150,000-200,000 euros ($ 166,000-220,000).
Sold on November 18.
"This is the only version," said Simon McGuire, London's Sotheby's musical manuscript expert.
Experts said, unlike Beethoven, Mozart did not continually rework it (among his modifications) and always wrote the first version.
The kind of dance Minuet has never been published, and the autograph contains 1-2 modifications and a few modifications that went into the hands of Mozart's father, Leopold.
The work was kept in Salzburg by the composer's sister Nannerl and later became the "Mozart's famous music collector", a huge collection by Austrian artist Stefan Zweig.
The only score still in the hands of the composer "Six Minuets K.164" is sold as part of the library of Jean-Francois Chaponniere, a well-known Swiss writing agency.
Mozart, a child prodigy, began composing at a very young age under the guidance of his father.
According to Sotheby's words, "Dance itself was also a great composer's passion. His wife Konstanze Mozart can say: His taste is in art rather than music."
On November 27 and 28, a 13-year-old portrait of Mozart will be sold again at Paris's rival auction house Christie & # 39; s.
It is still one of the very rare modern portraits of composers in private hands, and the bid price was set at 800,000 to 1.2 million euros.
