Misc. Notes Arranger's note The arranger intends that this transcription may be performed equally well with or without the flute part. The goal of the arrangement is to be as faithful to Mozart’s aesthetics as is possible, and either choice (whether to include the flute) provides different advantages. The version without flute matches the instrumentation of Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds, K.452. This version was the original version of the transcription.

The version with flute allows for a more exact match to the higher passages of Mozart’s violin part. The arranger believes the flute is particularly valuable in passages like bars 65–9 in the first movement and 270–9 in the last. If the flute is absent, the oboe and clarinet players should play the cues marked “play in absence of flute.”

The piano part is identical to the original.
