    This string quintet is one of seven by Spohr, who also wrote 36 string quartets, four double quartets for two string quartets, and an assortment of other quartets, duos, trios, sextets, an octet and a nonet. It is rewarding to play, with a first violin part that is more difficult than the other parts – possibly because Spohr was a virtuoso violinist himself. Iterestingly, Spohr is credited with inventing the violin chinrest!
