I believe them to be arrangements of sonatas for violin and piano. The
opus numbers no longer have any meaning and probably date from somebody
giving a bunch of opus numbers to Mozart's music ca. 1850. There are a
variety of instrumentations available for those duets including flute
and clarinet, and bassoon and clarinet. One thing for sure. Mozart's
did not arrange them.
