Annotation: This short three movement trio is similar to the Mozart Divertimenti and Bouffil Trios. The work features a mostly compact range in the three parts, with the exception of a few passages in which the first clarinet extends the range to F 6 . Harmonically and formally, this trio is extremely straightforward. The first clarinet part is exposed most frequently, and unlike the Bouffil Trios, the work overall is heavily dependent on the skill of the first player.
