Extra Information *The first edition and the 1914 score in Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Bayern, Vol.15 (ed. Hugo Riemann) based on it has 6 quartets (C, B, A, E, G, D), with only the first (C major) ever issued with parts edited by Riemnann. The source for the Wyatts' edition is the 1772 issue of La Chevardiere (Paris), the only which designated the quartets as "Op.5". They are also presented in a different order (G, B, A, D, g, E), with the quartet in C major omitted and one in G minor substituted. All seven have recently been published by Amadeus (2007), who uses the order of the first edition and Riemann's 1914 edition (C, B, A, E, G, D), appending the G minor quartet as "Op.5 No.5b".
