W. A. Mozart
Sinfonia Concertante
in Eb Major (K. 297b) for
Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Horn
and Orchestra

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer, violinist and piano virtuoso, was born on January 26,1756 in Salzburg, Austria and died on December 5, 1791 in Vienna, Austria. Mozart’s works are identified by Köchel numbers (pronounced “Kershel”), named for the Austrian musicologist Ludwig Köchel who, in 1862, published a numerical list of Mozart’s works in the order in which they had been written - i.e., K. 1 was the first piece Mozart wrote and K. 626, the last.

While in Mannheim, in late 1777, Mozart first heard the Clarinet. This was during his ill-fated trip to Paris (1777-1778), the purpose of which was to try to secure a position anywhere in Europe other than Salzburg, where he felt his talents were wasted. Not only did he not receive any offers for a position, his mother died while they were staying in Paris in 1778.

Sinfonia Concertante was written in April 1778, while in Paris - the same time as his Concerto for Flute and Harp (K. 299). K. 297b was originally for Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, F Horn and Orchestra but the score, which was left in Paris, disappeared. Mozart re-wrote the score in its present form, replacing the Flute with Clarinet.
