Mozart: Piano Trio in F, from duet K497
Instruments: piano, violin and cello
Catalogue no.: T1988-4
This piano trio started life as Mozart’s piano duet K497. John Cooley’s arrangement of it for piano trio is very successful, and brings this lovely piece into the hands of string players.
Cooley was born in London in 1923, and is an enthusiastic amateur violinist and violist. He worked as a water engineer, becoming Head of Winchester’s water supply by the time he retired. SJ Music has also published Cooley’s arrangement of Mozart’s piano duet K521 for piano quartet (Q1995-2).
