Misc. Comments

Mentioned in a May 1811 AMZ (Breitkopf&Härtel publication).

The B minor quartet is recorded in volume 2 of MDG's ongoing series of Romberg's string quartet (performed by the Leipziger String Quartet), a disc released in 2001. (Volume 1 contained the opus 1 quartets; volume 2 also contains a quartet each from opus 16 and opus 2. No sign of the series since.)
