Louis Spohr: Quintet In A Minor, Op. 91

Books | String Ensemble, Quintet

Catalogue No: SJQ19939
Composer: Louis Spohr
Format: Sheet Music | Parts

This String Quintet, written in 1834, is the fourth of seven by Spohr. It is rewarding to play, with a first Violin part that is more difficult than the other parts – possibly because Spohr was a virtuoso violinist himself.

Louis (born Ludwig) Spohr was born in 1784 in Braunschweig in the duchy of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel and died in 1859 in Kassel, Germany.
In 1808, he practised with Beethoven at the latter's home, working on the Piano Trio, Op. 70 No. 1, The Ghost, and a few years later, in 1820, he invented the Violin chinrest.
