The French composer Jean Françaix arranged Mozart's Quintet in E flat major for four wind instruments and piano in 1995. He maintained the original parts for oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon, yet transcribed the piano part for a string quartet and a double-bass. Mozart's complex piano quintet from 1784 is one of the most important contributions to the genre of quintet for piano and wind instruments. The brilliant transcription of the solemn and sometimes sparkling piano part for the string parts by Françaix is another proof of his lifelong admiration and study of Mozart. The clever arrangement of this work, so full of intensity and depth, for larger chamber music ensemble has already been performed at various festivals and is now available as a printed edition for the first time.
