Mozart was exceptionally pleased with his piano quintet in E-flat Major.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756−1791) composed his Piano Quintet in E-flat Major in March 1784. On 1st April 1 the work was performed for the first time, with the composer himself at the piano. In a letter to his father, he wrote about the work: "I consider it the best I have written in my life."
When Ludwig van Beethoven (1770−1827) wrote his Piano Quintet more than a decade later, Mozart's quintet was an obvious role model. The wind instruments were the same: oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. But the young Beethoven had already found a musical expression that clearly differed from Mozart's. The work was premiered in Vienna on 6th April 1797.
