Mozart’s two quartets were composed in 1785 for the first and 1786 for the second, at the same times as the Noces de Figaro. They are considered the first major works composed for piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire, scored for violin, viola, cello, and piano. Mozart received a commission for three to six quartets in 1785 from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister, but the poor success of the first quartet prevented the rest of the cycle from being completed. The Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44, by Robert Schumann was composed in September and October of 1842. As with most quintets for piano, it is written for piano and string quartet. Its first public performance was on 8 January 1843 with musicians from the Gewandhaus and Clara Schumann at the piano. Considered a major work of romantic chamber music, the model was adopted by Brahms, Dvořák, Tchaikovsky and César Franck.
