The composer writes: “I composed the Quintet for Two Violins, Viola, Cello and Double Bass between January and July 2008. This work is in three movements. The first (Con impeto) is written in sonata form, the second (Vivacissimo) is a scherzo with an ABABA form. The last movement (Andante) has two themes. The ABABA form returns with a reminiscence of the theme from the first movement’s introduction and then synthesizes both themes in the finale. The coda is derived from the primary theme of the first movement.
