W. A. Mozart
Clarinet Trio (K. 498)
in Bb Major
for Clarinet, Viola & Piano

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 Kochel 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.

Mozart’s Trio, K. 498 (for clarinet, viola & piano) was completed in Vienna on August 5, 1786. It was written for one of his pupils, Franziska von Jacquin (piano) with Mozart himself as violist and his friend Anton Stadler (1753-1812) on clarinet. It is nicknamed Klegelstatt Trio (klegelstatt is the Austrian term for “bowling alley”) because the legend is that Mozart composed the entire work on a single day while bowling with friends.
