Divertimento in this case was indeed Mozart's own title, entered into his workbook in 27 September 1788. (This was not always the case with works of his now called Divertimenti, the title sometimes being later added by others. In this case the work was first published as a string trio ("Gran Trio per Violino, Viola e Basso, Opus 19") (by Artaria); one could of course imagine it having been the other way around...)
Oddly, in November 1801 AMZ announced from Breitkopf 3 string trios by Mozart, a "2nd" opus of his trios; arrangements, one suspects, mostly at least (perhaps also containing this work as well), but otherwise of what? (AMZ November 1801 Intelligenzblatt, p.11.) (Of course, piano trios might have been what were meant- one often sees this typo. Even though the typo usually takes the form string trios for piano trios, not "viol., A. et violoncelle" as here.)
