Hi-- I'm just wondering if this article should be merged into Quintet. Cheers. --bleh fu 04:06, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)

I would suggest not. After all we have wind quintet, brass quintet, string quintet, and maybe some more. Since there are unique characteristics to these different types of quintets (much of which is yet to be written), and specific literature to list for each type, it seems to make more sense to me to do it in specific articles rather than overwhelm the quintet article.

You're absolutely right-- A lot of these articles need filling out. I would love to see Chamber music become a real hub for Category:Musical groups; please check out the talk page on chamber music. --bleh fu 04:46, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)

Keys, opus numbers, and more[edit]

Could someone add the keys and opus numbers to the works listed? It's great that they have years, but the other information is usually more important in identifying and referring to a work.

Also, Mahler wrote a piano quintet (or maybe part of one?) -- I think it may be from his student day's but it's probably worth including... (talk) 05:54, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Mahler wrote an unfinished piano quartet, not piano quintet. mcoverdale (talk) 17:27, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Table for list section[edit]

The "List" section reads pretty decently well as is, but it might be helpful to have it (maybe additionally to its current form?) in table form - in particular so you could organize across the centuries by alphabetical order of composer's name, and by year - seeing the chronology I think could be particularly useful. Sorry I lack the expertise to execute my own suggestion! (talk) 23:26, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
