    Of the two Franz Schmidt quintets for clarinet, piano, and string trio, the Bb Major (#1) is the most approachable. At about 32 minutes, it is half the length of the A Major Quintet (#2), and is also less complex harmonically and rhythmically. It offers a good introduction to Schmidt...

    's eclectic but sumptuous style. After getting one's feet wet with this piece, the more-daunting, but very rewarding A Major Quintet beckons. Even though originally written for Paul Wittgenstein, the one-armed pianist, both of these quintets are published today in versions for two-hand piano, as approved by the composer.
