Misc. Comments

Composition date from manuscript. (The thematic catalog is a recall from memory late in Ries' life and is often inaccurate!)

As of early 2017 possibly his only recorded string quartet with opus number (there are three others in the cpo series but all are WoO. There might be others still...)

All three of the Op.70 quartets have been uploaded in a batch by Sibley Library.
