The genesis of Mendelssohn's string quintets is closely connected to his
friend Eduard Rietz and the latter's brother Julius. Deeply affected by
Eduard's death in 1832, Mendelssohn exchanged the "Minuetto" movement
in his A major Quintet op. 18, written six years previously, for a newly
composed adagio. It was in this form that the work was fi nally sent to
the publisher. The Quintet in B flat major was only published after
Mendelssohn's death; numerous, unauthorized entries by Julius Rietz thus
found their way into performance practice.
