1842: Schumann's Piano Quintet
Robert Schumann, in one of music’s most astonishingly creative outbursts, composed six major chamber works between June and December, 1842. His Piano Quintet established the genre as no work had before, becoming an instant classic and paving the way for the immortal quintets by such composers as Brahms, Fauré, and Shostakovich.
