Mozart's friendship with Anton Stadler, the clarinetist in Vienna's Royal-Imperial Court Orchestra, led to the composition of his beloved Quintet in A Major. The four-movement piece is arranged for clarinet, two violins, viola, and cello. Brahms's Clarinet Quintet in B minor, also in four movements, is equally popular and often recorded as a companion to Mozart's work.
Professional and amateur musicians alike will appreciate this convenient single-volume publication of these frequently performed quintets. Both scores were reproduced from authoritative sources. Durable but inexpensive, this edition features a sturdy binding that allows pages to remain open on music stands for years of use and enjoyment.
