John Tavener's Kaleidoscopes is a tribute to Mozart for Solo Oboe, Percussion and Strings, lasting approximately 30 minutes.

In the composer's note, Tavener explains his high regard for Mozart, and how in Kaleidoscopes he attempts to take Mozart's music and meditate upon it in four main cycles. He states that all the music has its source in Mozart, whether it be rhythmic, harmonic or contrapuntal.
