About the Book All the standard instrumentation string quintets, plus String Quintet in C Minor, K.406; Quintet with Horn or Second Cello, K.407; and Clarinet Quintet, K.581. Breitkopf and Härtel edition. Study score. Book Synopsis This single volume contains all the string quintets of Mozart; the Quintet in B-flat Major, K.174; the imposing Quintet in C Major, K.515; the three late quintets considered to be among Mozart's greatest works -- the G Minor, K.516; the D Major, K.593; and the E-flat Major, K.614, one of the composer's last pieces. Also included are the String Quintet in C Minor, K.406 (actually an arrangement of the earlier Serenade for Wind Instruments, K.388); the Quintet with Horn or Second Cello, K.407: and the extremely popular Clarinet Quintet, K.581. The scores have been photographically reprinted from the Breitkopf and Härtel printed text, still considered the standard, authoritative edition for the Mozart quintets. Noteheads in this edition are large enough to be read easily, and margins and spaces between staves permit written notes, harmonic analysis, fingerings, and running measure numbers. Since Mozart's string quintets are frequently performed in concert and there are several recordings currently available for each of these pieces, this edition is extremely useful for study, reference, and enjoyment. About the Author A child prodigy who blossomed into the Classical era's most influential composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-91) wrote more than 600 works in his brief life. His oeuvre encompasses a wide variety of genres, including symphonic, chamber, operatic, and choral music.
