Detailed Description

Quintet in D Major composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958). Masterworks; Part(s); Score; String Quintet. Faber Edition. 20th Century; Masterwork. Published by Faber Music (AP.12-0571519830).

ISBN 0571519830. 20th Century; Masterwork.

Quintet in D is in four movements: Allegro moderato, an Allegretto Intermezzo, Andantino and an Allegro molto finale. If it only fitfully contains elements of the mature Vaughan Williams, it is a delightful work in its own right, with playful touches and more than a ration of charm. The writing for piano is very accomplished and shatters the myth, much propagated by the composer himself, that he lacked technique. It is like anglicised Brahms with a sense of humor, notably in the Intermezzo, and there is even an allusion to the slow movement of Brahms' Fourth Symphony in the Andantino.

The total duration is about 25 minutes.
