General information


This work has been misattributed.
See notes for details and correct composer below or see the discussion page.

The 6 nocturnes, canzonette or terzetti are listed as KV 346 (K6 439a), 436-439 & 549 in the Köchel catalogue of compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Recent scholarship (and the NMA) tends to take at face value Constanze Mozart's statement that the first 5 are by Gottfried von Jacquin (son of the famous botanist) to which Mozart added accompaniments for reeds. Watermark studies suggest 1783 as a likely date.

KV 549 is listed in Mozart's own catalogue of his works and dated Vienna, 16 July 1788.
