Wrap yourself in the darkness of Mozart's masterpiece of chamber music: Quintet in G minor, with its 'revolutionary' structure of five movements, includes the first use of mutes, in the slow movement. Vaughan Williams' youthful Quintet is for the same combination as the trout Quintet of Schubert, and is a rarely heard delight.
