The violin part in these youth sonatas is optional ('ad libitum') and can be left out. The original piano part can be played solo. Henle published not long ago a version of KV 6 - 9 without the violin part.

Did Mozart write those dreadful daily exercises at the start? :-)

Btw1, Köchel's catalogue has an additional 50-bar Marche in F
associated with K8, quoted in full. However, my German isn't up
to the task of working out quite what this associaion is. Underneath
the music it says: Ob es von Mozart stammt ist ungewiß.

Btw2, all of his early violin sonatas (K6-15, K26-31 and K55-61)
can be played fairly satisfactorily without the accompanying violin.

Thanks but what about this D flat ?
Is there a technical explanation about this ?

Unfortunately, the incipit in Köchel only gives the first 3 bars.
Perhaps the D flat was put there by Charles Hallé to make the first
phrase slightly less repetitive.

In the NMA this D-flat is not in the violin & keyboard version. But it appears in the NMA in the first movement of KV 8 that's in Nannerl's Notenbuch. Strangely this D-flat appears there only in measures 6, 7 and 8, but not in measure 5! But this D-flat was apparently put in by Wolfgang or Leopold in this solo version. What I understand in Kochel ed. 8 about the March is that the page in the Nannerl Notenbuch wchich has KV8 starts with this March, notated by Leopold. Kochel ed. 8 mentions that it is not certain if Wolfgang composed this March, although this is probable.
Indeed all the youth sonatas can be played without the violin. But KV55-61 are listed as spurious and not by Mozart.
I hope the new catalogue by Neil Zaslaw will appear soon. The Mozarteum communicated in 2011 that it was near completion!

The Mozarteum gave us 94 seconds of "new" Mozart!
Allegro in D K626b/16
