Anton Bruckner - String quintet

Bruckner (1824-1896) was a romantic Austrian composer, who is quite rightly hailed as one of the greatest symphonists of all time. For me, his unfinished 9th symphony is a candidate for the title best symphony ever. His other works have drawn much less attention, but his Quintet for strings in F major, WAB 112, from 1879 deserves to be far better known. Relevant links below.
