The composer's own arrangement of his Quintet for piano, flute, clarinet, bassoon, and horn, op. 52.

"Spohr immediately arranged his quintet op. 52 for strings... In this version, which was published simultaneously with op. 52 and to which Peters assigned a separate opus number for commercial reasons, the quintet became available to a larger audience, but because of its demanding piano part its dissemination remained limited."
