Quintet in E Flat for Oboe, Clarinet, Horn,
Bassoon and Pianoforte, K. 452 .... Mozart Largo , Allegro moderato; Larghetto ; Rondo, Allegretto
SOME of Mozart's chamber music for the less usual combinations of instruments suggests, and indeed we sometimes know it to have been the case, that it was written specially for gatherings of friends. And some of it bears traces of having been dashed off rather lightheartedly. This Quintet, however, is a very model of exquisite workmanship, and the scholar finds as much to admire in it, as the more heedless listener does to enjoy. It begins with a slow Introduction which has nothing sad, nor even solemn, in it; its dignity is a smiling one. And the quick movement to which it leads is simply bubbling over with gaiety. The first tune is irresistible in its happiness, and there is something of mischief in the way in which the wind instruments begin it half way through the pianoforte's statement of it, and carry it on in their own laughing way;
.The slow movement'is no less cheerful; it begins with a happy tune which flute and bassoon play in thirds, and all the instruments
, in turn have little melodies of their own. The last movement, as wholly carefree as the first, is a sprightly Rondo which the pianoforte begins alone.
