Mozart's Five Divertimenti KV 439b (App. 229) were presumably composed between 1783 and 1785. They are widely prevalent in various scorings. Originally, the works were written for 3 basset horns - early printings shortly after Mozart's death were used as sources. However, these well-known pieces can naturally still be played by two clarinets and bassoon, a scoring which has become standard since the beginning of the 19th century. In addition, they can also be performed an three clarinets, which makes them ideal for use in teaching instrumental ensemble playing. Like Ludwig Guttler and his "Trumpet and Organ" albums, another team of esteemed soloists has prepared its own edition of a work they have superbly recorded: Sabine Meyer, Wolfgang Meyer and Reiner Wehle, who perform together in the "Trio di Clarone" besides appearing as soloists, offer a practical edition which is absolutely faithful to the original musical text. Arrangements for strings can be found here.

The edition of the five Mozart Divertimenti K. 439b (App. 229) offers extended performance options: original: 3 basset horns traditional and established: 2 clarinets and bassoon for group lessons: 3 clarinets.
