Description: This long, ongoing series continues with works written between 1786 and 1789, quintets with two violas and in only three movements (no minuets except one for a finale in Ben 278). The notes speculate on Pleyel's series of quintets having helped motivate Mozart to write his late five string quintets. Janácek Quartet, Bohuslav Matousek (viola).
