Along with Hermann Suter and Friedrich Hegar, Hans Huber was one of the leading musical personalities in German-speaking Switzerland at the turn of the 20th century. Huber composed his Sextet in 1898 at a very busy time when he was giving private lessons, fulfilling various offices and also directing the Basle Gesangverein. The Sextet was given its first performance on 11 June 1900 as part of a solo concert that the Gesangverein organized in the Music Hall of the Basel Casino, and it shared the program with works by Dvorak, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Joachim Röntgen. The Quintet for piano, flute, clarinet, horn and bassoon was written in 1914 and was given its world permière on 15 June 1918 in the Lausanne Theatre at the 19th festival of the Swiss Musicians' Association. Paul Otto Moeckel played the piano, and the other musicians were members of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra.
