Quintet in E-flat for Piano and Winds, Op. 16, was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1796.

The performance takes around 23-26 minutes.
Beethoven subsequently transcribed the Op. 16 quintet as a quartet for piano and string trio (violin, viola, and cello), using the same opus number, tempo markings, and overall timing.
Artaria published an unauthorized transcription of the Op. 16 quintet as a string quartet which they designated as the composers Op. 75.
