Gaspard Kummer's Quintet Op.66 has finally received the attention it deserves! Editor Janice Dockendorff Boland has painstakingly researched and restored this piece, based on the facsimile edition in the Library of Congress (Washington, D.C.). Perhaps the most striking quality of this work is the rich sonority created by the two violas (instead of the traditional 2 violins). The work is not a virtuoso flute work with string accompaniment, but a chamber music work in its truest sense. It is beautifull written with interplay and conversation among all the instruments, none of which are relegated to a strictly accompanimental role.
