String Quintets, Volume 2 (parts) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Scored for two violins, two violas, and cello. Published by C.F. Peters

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was one of the most prominent composers of the Classical period and is often considered one of the greatest composers of Western art music. A noted child prodigy, he excelled in all genres. His music is revered for its beauty, clarity, balance, and transparency, underpinned by sophisticated craftsmanship.

The classical string quintet-sometimes called a viola quintet, on account of its second viola-- was more or less invented by Michael Haydn, but Mozart fully realized its potential with several works in the genre, spanning from his teenage years to his late period of compositional maturity. They rank as his crowning achievement in chamber music with their invention, classical beauty, richness, and depth. This Peters edition-volume two of two-contains his earliest effort in the genre, as well as arrangements of other beloved chamber works for the same instrumentation. Scored for two violins, two violas, and cello. Parts only. Advanced level, Grade 5.
