Barber's WW Quintet is a good piece
Agreed. I forgot to mention Barber's Summer Music. And I greatly enjoy the Farkas piece mentioned above. The Allegro and Arioso by Ingolf Dahl (an underrated composer imho) is very good too.
Hey cut me some slack, Heck ;-). The Taffanel was composed in 1876.
Meanwhile here's a 3 record set of 20th century WW quintets that I have. Much to like here (and despite its title some of these are fairly conservative).
Ignore the blue string quartet box..how the hell it's there is beyond me
