PROKOFIEV Quintet in G minor, Op. 39
BEETHOVEN Septet in E-flat major, Op. 20
Commissioned in the early 1920s while staying in Paris, Prokofiev’s Quintet was composed for a traveling ballet troupe with only five musicians among them. Beethoven’s Septet in E-flat major, written at the turn of the 19th century, blends the popular divertimentos of the previous century with experimental arrangements hailed by early Romanticists.
