Gaspard Kummer
Quintet Op.66 for flute, violin, 2 violas and cello

Pub: ALRY Publications

Hear sound clips on the publishers website.

Gaspard Kummer’s Quintet Op.66 has finally received the attention it deserves! Editor Janice Dockendorff Boland has painstakingly researched and restored this piece, based on the facsimile edition in the Library of Congress (Washington, D.C.). Perhaps the most striking quality of this work is the rich sonority created by the two violas (instead of the traditional 2 violins). The work is not a virtuoso flute work with string accompaniment, but a chamber music work in its truest sense. It is beautifully written with interplay and conversation among all the instruments, none of which are relegated to a strictly accompanimental role.


Kummer Quintet Op. 75 for two flutes, viola, guitar and cello

Gaspard Kummer
Quintet for 2 flutes, viola, guitar and cello
Op.75

Pub: Falls House Press/ Theodore Presser

Kummer wrote beautiful chamber music. This is one of our favorites. We performed and recorded this work on 19th-century period instruments. Equally as lovely, however, on modern instruments. Kummer’s Quintet Op. 75 is a unique work in the chamber music repertoire. I know of no other scored for this combination – 2 flutes, viola, cello and guitar. It is a lovely work in four movements. The Quintet Op. 75 was recorded by Red Cedar Chamber Music on the Fleur de Son Classics label in June, 2010. This is a period instrument recording. Recording artists are Jan Boland and Douglas Worthen (19th-century wooden flutes by Koch and Ziegler), John Dowdall (19th-century gut-strung guitar), David Miller (gut-strung viola) and Loretta O’Sullivan (gut-strung cello).
