About the Programme
Mozart wrote his Divertimento in E flat major for violin, viola and cello (K 563) for his friend and fellow-Freemason Michael Puchberg. He completed the six-movement work (one of his longest pieces of chamber music) in Vienna on 27 September 1788. In other words, it too is a “late work”: it was composed immediately after the three great final symphonies, to which, despite its title, it is in no way inferior in artistry. The first performance probably took place in private surroundings at Puchberg’s Vienna home. Mozart’s letters also tell us that he performed the string trio at the court in Dresden, where it was “presented quite passably”. In any event he received a “beautiful snuffbox” for his efforts. Annette Kolb, in her Mozart biography, claims that with this Divertimento “Mozart rose far above the miseries of his life, forgetting them all in gleeful reverie”.
