Includes score and parts

      J.B. Forester personifies the transition from the founding generation of Czech music(Smetana, Dvorak, Fibich) to modern music. This particular quintet begins with an allegro moderato, moving to a meno mosso in 12/8 time which is quite challenging for all parts. The second movement is an andante sostenuto, a flowing 3/4 section, then an allegro section. Movement three is an allegro scherzando in 6/8 time, transitioning to an andante con moto section. The final movement is in 3/4 time moving through several tempo changes.
