Misc. Comments

  • No.5 (WK 65) recorded by the Salomon Quartet on the 1995 CD "Quartet in 18th-century England" for Hyperion. Set published 1769(?) according to back cover of the Hyperion CD. Published in 1768 by J. J. Hummel (plate 135) according to Bernhard Blattmann writing for the notes on Accent (who has them dedicated to the Queen- so either to George III or to his wife Queen Charlotte?) though clearly dedicated to his Majesty in the Bremner edition above.
Was this published without the composer's cooperation? As it is all under one opus number, there is no reason to make it a "Collection" otherwise- quite the opposite (at least, I cannot think of a single good reason to make this a Collections page.) - ES (Also, WK62 recorded in flute, violin, viola ("tenor") and cello version on the 2009-10 Accent CD ACC 24221 "C.F. Abel & J.C. Bach - Chamber Music", with duration 13 minutes.)
