Analysis at Draeseke.org
There is a String Quintet No.1 (written for quartet and violotta, but playable by string quartet plus violoncello instead like this) in A major from 1897 (WoO 25). (The one recording to date (December 2010) in its original instrumentation pairs the first quintet with Krug's sextet opus 68 published 1897.) There are (as of 3/2017) two recordings of the 2nd quintet (this one) but one may be limited in distribution; the other is on cpo.
