    This is a string quintet (a single slow movement lasting about seven minutes) with two cellos, with the added flexibility of a clarinet part to replace the viola part, and a double bass part to replace one cello part (these extra parts are included). It is lyrical and straightforward to play. "Pavane couleur du temps" was first composed in 1920 as a string quintet with 2 cellos. Versions for string orchestra and for piano duet also exist.
