 Re: Mozart Clarinet Quintet

Thanks for those corrections Liquorice! A corrected version is now on the website:

Apologies to those who downloaded it already. I did now include a replacement page with the downward scale but...

...I think it is unlikely to be by Mozart. I know of that quartet arrangement you mention, but don't have a copy. I think it might be the same as the one published much later by Universal Edition "with fingerings and performance indications by G.A. Glossner", which is on IMSLP. (That arrangement shows elsewhere that it is based on the clarinet adaption, so the downward scale might be the work of a pianist arranger.) Anyway, Werner Breig had a good look at the arrangement and concluded that it was no closer to Mozart's original than the early prints. That article can be found in:

Werner and Fricke, Heike, 'Studien zu Mozarts Klarinettenquintett KV 581’, in Manfred Hermann Schmid (ed.), Mozart Studien Band 15, (Tutzing, 2006)

Meanwhile, the "Grand Sonate" version for clarinet or violin and piano from Artaria (1809) also has the traditional downward and then upward scale. A scan of the original is on IMSLP.

It's also possible that Stadler played a downward scale not written by Mozart, and that later in life he played the quintet on a regular clarinet and made the adaption we know today. Harald Strebel has documented all of Stadler's known concerts on the first few pages of his Vol#2. There are performances on basset horn, Bb basset clarinet, and a private performance of the clarinet quintet for Salieri's 50th birthday, but no Mozart Concerto performances.
