Completed in Vienna on December 12, 1785. "The Sonata in E-flat major is certainly one of the most mature works in Mozart's whole chamber music output. The three movements are in complete balance with one another, each having its own structural principle and each starting with an individual interpretation of one of the oldest and commonest thematic principles: the major triad. The exposition of the first movement contains three clearly outlined subjects. The Adagio, in A-flat major, is a rondo with two episodes and varied repeats of the principal subject; it is full of romantic modulations. The Finale, a set of variations on a leisurely theme twenty measures in length, brings the desirable relaxation after the emotional tension of the Adagio." Zaslaw and Cowdery: The Compleat Mozart, p. 297.
