Misc. Comments

This movement and the movement in F major, CNW 50 was probably part of an early string quartet performed in January 1888. In a letter, Nielsen refers to a quartet that he showed to his teacher, Orla Rosenhoff, in late 1887. A string quartet was performed at The Private Chamber Music Society; however, it has not been possible to determine which of the surviving movements were part of the quartet performed.
