Mozart’s “Early Quartet” collection is recognized as a crown of string chamber music. This accessible arrangement, from an arranger recognized for his careful and creative adaptations, is very true to the original. An interesting bass part has been added, and the more taxing rhythms, accidentals and embellishments have been simplified. Playable by younger players, yet advanced students also will find this piece delightfully satisfying—even challenging—when played at a faster tempo. Here’s a centerpiece for any string orchestra concert program!
