The origin of the present trio, composed by Mozart in 1783 and dedicated to Gottfried von Jacquin, is recounted in Anderson's Letters of Mozart and his Family, p. 903 n. 7: "Mozart and his wife and Jacquin were out walking one day when Constanze happened to lose a ribbon which her husband had given her and exclaimed, using the Viennese dialect: 'Liebes Mandl, wo is's Bandl?' Jacquin, a tall fellow, picked up the ribbon and refused to let her have it until she or her little husband should catch it. Upon which Mozart wrote the poem which he afterwards set to music."
