By procurement of the the flutist Johann Baptist Wendling De Jean ordered these quartets from Mozart for 200 gulden. After completion of the first quartet, Mozart was distracted by the acquaintance with Aloisia Weber and the rest of the composition was delayed. On the day of departure, De Jean thus reduced the payment to 96 gulden.
I played that lately and enjoyed it very much. Very fine music! Technically not too difficult for all players.
