Body and Intention – Tracking Down Musicians’ Health

That's right, Beethoven wrote a Quintet for Piano and Winds which is well known but none for piano and strings.
It's GREAT to be a classical musician!

Correct me if wrong, but I think Beethoven wrote a quintet for piano and strings in E flat opus16. :)

Sorry I'm being an idiot! That is of course the quintet for piano and wind! He didn't write any for strings! ;D

I have heard a recording of this quintet arranged for piano and string quartet.  I don't know if Beethoven himself made the arrangement or not.
