Re: Brahms - Symphony No. 5 (?)
« Reply #980 on: December 04, 2017, 12:56:23 PM »
Just I stumbled upon this raritie. An orchestration of the String quintet No. 2 by Brahms. Originally, Brahms intended his quintet like a symphony, but for some reason he changed the plans and decided to settle on the chamber form. I wish Brahms had composed another magnificent symphony. Unfortunately, the 4th movement is missing.
The Double Concerto is another piece he originally intended as a symphony, before changing his mind.
