Notes & Reviews:

When he wrote his second String Quintet, Op. 111, in 1890, Brahms thought, strangely enough, that it would be his artistic testament. However, this serene work was to be followed by another quintet, this time with clarinet, which was inspired by Brahms's fascination with the playing of the clarinetist Richard Muhlfeld.
