Mozart’s first three quartets were written in Mannheim, Germany between 1777 and 1782 at the request of amateur flutist Ferdinand De Jean who was introduced to Mozart by the well-known German violinist Christian Cannabich. Mozart first mentioned his quartets in a letter to his father, Leopold on December 10, 1777. The fourth quartet is believed to have been written for recreational purposes, as opposed to on commission.The work is thought to have been written sometime in 1786 or 1787, only a few years before the composer's death.
