2 Menuette, KV 604 (string quartet)
Title: 2 Menuette, KV 604
Composer: W. A. Mozart, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello
Printout: 8 pages
Note: Written in 1791 while Mozart was in the service of Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor, these two minuets exhibit both the light-hearted spirit of the composer’s youth and the polish of his maturity. Written at the same time as The Magic Flute and the unfinished Requiem, they share many traits with these larger and more serious works.
