The edition of the five Mozart Divertimenti K Anh. 229 (439b) offers extended performance options:
Mozart's five divertimenti K Anh. 229 (439b) were presumably composed between 1783 and 1785. They are widely prevalent in various scorings. Originally, the works were written for 3 basset horns (2 basset horns or 2 clarinets and bassoon) - early printings shortly after Mozart's death were used as sources.
The present arrangement and setting by the composer and conductor Paul Klengel not only opens up a different instrumental genre for the pieces. with the choice of 2 violins and viola - i.e. a "high" string trio scoring - there is also a change of register that decisively alters the sound character.
