Three of these quintets were published in 1824 by Ignaz Pleyel. They incorporate themes by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, respectively. The fourth one, however, probably predates this collection. The music cites Rossini's opera “The Barber of Seville”, which was first performed in 1816.
It appears that this CD set may be about to go out of print.
