One thought on “Mozart Quintett Nr. 6, K. 581

  1. A scholarly reconstruction for basset clarinet by Craig Hill is available on IMSLP. See also: Hill, Craig, “Reconstructing the Basset Clarinet part of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet KV 581” which gives a detailed explanation of the reconstruction (available on YUMPU).

    The same author has completed the Rondo Fragment Anh. 88 which may have been intended as a finale to KV 581 (Accolade Verlag, 2022).
