Johannes Brahms' two string quintets are late works, composed respectively in 1882 and 1890. Like other pieces from the last decade of Brahms life, they hold deep secrets that reveal themselves only slowly, over repeated hearings. They may in fact be tougher nuts to crack than the structurally similar clarinet pieces from the same period, for the dense, undifferentiated string quintet texture demands especially close attention.

This mood of excitement continues, with a magnificent, lyrical violin tune, almost without let-up a wistful, minor key second subject notwithstanding to the end of this long, burgeoning first movement. Johannes Brahms's String Quartet No. 1 in C minor and String Quartet No. 2 in A minor were completed in Tutzing, Bavaria, during the summer of 1873, and published together that autumn as Op. They are dedicated to his friend Theodor Billroth. Brahms was slow in writing his first two string quartets. We know from a letter from Joseph Joachim that a C minor quartet was in progress in 1865, but it may not have been the same work that would become Op. 51 No. 1 in 1873. Four years before publication.
