    Woodwind quintets: as you mentioned Reicha and Danzi featured prominently in this genre. But I don't think there is anything on the same level of the above two masterpieces.
    Right, they are great pieces, esp the Mozart - but they are of a different genre - works with WWs and piano.

    Haydn's Divertimento in Bb for Wind Quintet is also a great four movement wind quintet.

    Right - "Summer Music" - very fine work.

    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

    A conductor is a musician who's adept at following many people at the same time.

    looks good - the Irving Fine "Partita" is a very good work - sounds like Stravinsky, in the "Rake's Progress" style...

    Yes, very much agree on the Irving Fine Partita. And the original Dorian Quintet was a great group. I got to know Jane Taylor, the original bassoonist, and she was a great lady and excellent musician.
