"This is the most famous of the quintets. Its very special key, its dramatic power, its combination of tragedy and tenderness have assured it a unique place in the chamber-music repertoire. Together with the great G-minor Symphony, K. 550 (completed July 25, 1788), it constitutes the most personal music, perhaps, that Mozart ever wrote." Zaslaw & Cowdery, eds.: The Compleat Mozart A Guide to the Musical Works, p. 255. Item #21565
