Mozart wrote this concerto shortly before his death, in 1791, for the clarinetist Anton Stadler, the Austrian clarinet and basset horn player (28 June 1753, Bruck an der Leitha – 15 June 1812, Vienna). The concerto was given its premiere by Stadler in Prague on October 16, 1791. The reception of his performance was generally positive. It consists of the usual three movements, in a fast-slow-fast form:

  1. Allegro
  2. Adagio @12:52
  3. Rondo: Allegro @19:32
