After moving to Vienna Mozart wrote few divertimenti, but the serenade in G-major became one of his most widely known works. Working as a "freelance" composer, Mozart surely composed this for a particular patron or event, but unusually neither is known. What is known from the catalogue entry is that the second movement is now lost - Mozart describes a Menuet seperating the initial Allegro from the Romance.
This arrangement contains only the 1st and 4th movements.
