Notes and Editorial Reviews

Three of the six works for piano trio achieved by Mozart between 1776 and 1788. The genre was in full expansion in Vienna owing to the growing vogue of the pianoforte, which was occurring in the middle-class as well as the aristocratic drawing rooms. Mozart nudged the simple 'Sonata with accompaniment' into oblivion, proposing a new balance, especially in the pre-romantic Trio in B flat announcing the op.70 of Beethoven, achieved eighteen years later.
