Catalogue Number: 08N041
Description: The 1842 quintet, published on Clara's birthday and containing symbols relating to their relationship, was transcribed by her the year after her husband's death in such a way as to make it a wholly legitimate new work for piano duo. Whether it's been recorded before I don't know but it was never republished after Breitkopf first issued it 150 years ago. Harald Ossberger, Christos Marantos (piano duo).
