This is another personal favorite that I definitely had to transcribe. It’s just too bad that Mozart didn’t write any other piece for this ensemble. This fact probably means it was a work done on commission or for a particular occasion.
On surface it looked also like a freebie (= easy to transcribe) because it’s got only two voices, as the piano. As it turned out, it was definitely easier to work on than most other pieces but it wasn’t exactly walk in the park either. There was also a micro-cadenza to fill out in the second movement.
The video of the first movement contains an error which was spotted by a YouTube listener. That error was fixed in the “release” mp3 posted on IMSLP.
