- Just in the instrument, due I think to their common origin as portable symphonies (to summarize a theory advanced by- among others? - Alfred Einstein)... Schissel | Sound the Note! 22:07, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
I asked for cites for the Beethoven transcription of the Kreutzer Sonata because it is not in my supposedly complete works of Beethoven CD collection, and otherwise have never heard of it. Please only include it if it was made by Beethoven.
I also asked for a cite for the transcription of the Brahms clarinet quintet because, although it undoubtedly exists, I have my doubts that it was written by Brahms voluntarily (if at all). If it can be shown that Brahms thought this was a good idea then fine. Op47 (talk) 21:54, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
So a string quintet is a composition for four string musicians playing five instruments? Does that mean one of the musicians is playing two instruments alternately? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:29, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
