Concerto 23 A major KV 488 Completed: 2 March 1786 Mozart is 30 years old 1786, 30 September, Mozart to Kammerdiener Sebastian Winter (Hof Donaueschingen) Tomorrow the music you requested will leave here with the post coach;…it its nothing strange that a few of my pieces have been sent abroad–but they are pieces which I wrote quite casually, and I sent you the themes, only because it was still possible that the pieces had not arrived. But the pieces which I reserve for myself or for a small circle of amateurs and connoisseurs (in return for their promise not to let them out of their possession) cannot possibly be known abroad, because they are not even known here;–such is the case with the 3 concerti which I have the honor to send to Your Lordship…there are 2 clarinets in the Concerto in A–should they not be available at your Court, then a suitable copyist should transpose them into the right key so that the first part can be played by a violin and the second with a viola…. 1800/01 First posthumous publication, Andr, Offenbach.Download booklet
