Misc. Comments

Note the Récit in the scherzo of the A minor trio... publication date estimate from Italian Wikipedia article on Viotti. If it were not for the early date, would be guessing after 1820 (for a late Beethoven chamber music influence) though an operatic influence might be as likely. Whether the words at this point in the 2nd trio minuet, "Lasciami, ah lasciami, perfido traditore non m’ami non son io il tuo bene oh di-o che ma-i fa-rò" under each part, are meant to be vocalized or are just an indication is not indicated?
