Of the small-scale scorings, Christian Schwencke's arrangement for a chamber group including piano is sonically the most effective and this arrangement is the most coherent representation of Mozart's ideas for five players. In common with several transmitted versions of the Gran Partita, Schwencke's version includes a third Trio attached to the first Menuetto; to date this Trio has neither been authenticated as true Mozart, nor debunked, and it is included in this first modern edition of this work for a unique instrumental combination, also offering the alternatives of flute, clarinet or even another violin to replace the oboe.
