Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895-1968) would write two piano quintets during the course of his career. The first, with its baroque eclecticisms, is indicative of his characteristic film music, with its pathos and capacity for creating scenic spaces. The Second Quintet, composed in Beverly Hills in 1951 and counted as his op.155, is entitled Memories of the Tuscan Countryside. The work is one of cheerful, contemplative serenity, and might be understood as a quiet meditation on nostalgic yearning for his native Italy.
