Misc. Comments

  • The 4 quartets in question were recorded by Köchel in his appendix IV nos.210-214 as of doubtful authenticity, not having seen them. His knowledge of their existence stems from a hand-written catalog of Aloys Fuchs (1799-1853), a collector of then unedited works. These 4 were consulted at the time of this 1932 edition in the then called Preussische Staatsbiobliothek in an oblong folio dated 1830, containing 13 quartets in all. The prominent Mozart researcher Georges de St.Foix who examined them thoroughly is said to have pronounced them genuine and probably composed about 1772/3 at Bolzano or Milan. Wollheims's edition follows Aloys Fuchs's copy strictly apart from some playing instructions that are in parentheses.
  • Grove Music still lists them as "spurious".
