Two Cello Quintets

Two Cello Quintets

Found the head line confusing for I first thougt of "two cello-quintets" instead of "two-celli quintets" ...
 

There is another one we tried yesterday: Carl Gottlieb Reißiger, op. 90, a quintet for two celli or two violas: 2vn, va, 2vc or 2vn, 2va, vc. To be found on imslp.org. The first violin better takes a look at her part beforehand because it has many sixteenths. I tried it on the flute, which worked quite well, although of course certain passages would have to be arranged a bit.
