Misc. Comments

  • String Quartet No.1 of 6 (2nd written, first published); Worldcat lists a quartet in C minor op.63 published in 1927. (of course might be no.2 of 3, or somesuch. Hofmeister lists no quartets by Woyrsch in the period preceding 1901 so am guessing not. Grove may be more authoritative - will check at library. (Schissel)
