Flute Quintet B 387 for flute quintet

$15.00

Originally for Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello, this arrangement is transposed from its original D major and received added a fifth voice, which gives it a new dynamic and textural range. In its new setting in F major it sits beautifully onto a flute quintet and has a remarkable range of colors and textures. Pleyel is vastly underrated probably because he wasn’t always consistent. But at his best – and this is Pleyel at his very best – his chamber music is truly excellent: indeed during his time in London Mozart was so impressed he bought a copy of Pleyel’s quartets and sent them home to his sister saying how exceptional they were.
