Description:

Mozart received a commission for three quartets in 1785 from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister. Hofmeister's fear that the work was too difficult for amateurs so he released Mozart from the obligation of completing the set. Nine months later, Mozart composed a second quartet. Those are the Piano Quartets KV 478 in G minor and KV 493 in E-flat major.
At the time the piece was written, the harpsichord was still widely used. Although the piece was originally published with the title 'Quatuor pour le Clavecin ou Forte Piano, Violon, Tallie [sic] et Basse,' stylistic evidence suggests Mozart intended the piano part for 'the 'Viennese' fortepiano of the period' and that our modern piano is 'a perfectly acceptable alternative.'
