The original is Flute Quartet in A major KV298, which is the last one among four Flute Quartets by Mozart. It was written for Jacquin family as the Kegelstatt Trio (KV498) was. It consists of three movements, I.THEME (Andante), II.MENUETTO, III.RONDIEAOUX(Alllegro grazioso). The original melody of movement I was by Anton Hoffmeister (1754-1812) who was a flutist, composer and publisher in Vienna. Mozart dedicated his String Quartet in D major, KV499 to him. Mozart used a French folk song in movement II. The melody of movement III was an aria composed by an Italian composer, Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816) who had influenced Mozart. Mozart composed a small piano piece, 6 Variations on Aria 'Salve tu, Domine' from Opera "I filosofi immaginarii" by Paisiello, KV398. Thus, this KV298 is an unique work, and full of enjoyment. This music is also enjoyable for string quartet players. An easy way is that Violin I plays the original Flute part, however two Violin parts are so specialized. It is more natural to mix the original two parts in string ensemble. This arrangement is only partial exchanging notes of two parts to enhance player's fun.
