Sample text

499, known as the Hoffmeister Quartet, is only one product of the congenial relationship that existed between the composer and this publisher. Mollo had once been a member of the ‹rm of Artaria, but opened his own company in the summer of 1798. The publishing house of Torricella saw its heyday during the 1770s and early 1780s. Its publications included works by Haydn, Mozart, J. C. Bach, Leopold Kotzeluch, Franz Anton Hoffmeister, and others. Torricella also acted as a distributor for Antoine Huberty.

A-›ats grind against A-naturals and B-›ats against B-naturals, but within the context of the individual lines, each of the chromatic forms of the sixth and seventh scale degrees is necessitated by Mozart’s exacting voice leading. Note the astonishing precision in speci‹cation of phrasing, articulation, and dynamics; almost every single note is accompanied by some instruction. In this introductory passage, Mozart integrates ornament and structure. The principal theme, stated in the viola in the ‹rst measure, is a turn ‹gure that is imitated in the second violin part a ‹fth higher on E-›at, then in the ‹rst violin part a tritone higher on A-natural.

In the four-movement scheme, Mozart’s preferred tempo sequence is fast, slow, moderate, fast. The moderate movement is ordinarily a minuet. Exceptions are K. 170, which has the sequence Andante, Menuetto, Poco Adagio, and Allegro [rondo]; and K. 171, with its unique design, Adagioallegro-adagio, Menuetto, Andante, Allegro assai. Both quartets reverse the internal movements and place the minuet in second position. The tonal arrangement of movements remains variable in these fourmovement quartets, but in three of them, the slow movement is in the key of the subdominant.
