Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - String Quintet in G minor

Mozart (1756-1791) was an Austrian composer, generally regarded as one of the greatest of all time. Most people know his late symphonies, later piano concertos, clarinet concerto, requiem, a handful of operas and Eine kleine Nachtmusik. His chamber music is less well known but it contains absolute gems, such as the string quintet for two violins, two violas and cello, no. 4 in G minor (K. 516). Relevant links below.
