This Viennese trilogy was neglected in the Romantic era then reduced to pianoforte chamber music under the Baroque revival. Often only KV 415 is played by C. Haskil, R. Serkin, A-B Michelangeli, M. Perahia, A. Schiff and M-J Pircs. Mozart produced scores with variable accompaniment back in 1781 to satisfy the Austrian Emperor's court and private salons. The Pražák quartet plays here with a remarkable Czech pianist reminiscent of I v a n Moravec, proving its contemporary relevance.
