These three did not write any piano quintets - by which I take it you mean Pf,Vl1,Vl2,Va,Vc. It is generally thought that Luigi Boccherini was the first composer to write for this combination - there are two of his quintets on IMSLP. Otherwise, it was kickstarted as a combination by Robert Schumann.

I would look at the Boccherinis.

It seems that Giordani quintets might predate Boccherini's by a few years. But they are, of course, not as well known.

Fred and Jean-Séb:

Thank you for the explanations and recommendations.

My first idea was to choose some divertimentos by F-J-Haydn, but as I recall include other instruments as well as strings.

I will look at the Boccherini's and Giodani's.

In this case, Steibelt's and Dussek's are great options, as suggested by Jean-Séb.

Best regards.

The score and parts of Oleg Eiges' piano quintet. I hope to someday access a copy of his piano trio.
