Misc. Comments

There are 3 (recent) commercial recordings (one is part of a cycle of all eight of his quartets, one is on the Capriccio label with quartet 7, and one is coupled with works by Bach and Beethoven - the Bach Art of Fugue which may have been one work in Beethoven's mind when he wrote his Quartet in C minor, in turn a work that was fairly definitely? in Krenek's "ear" when he wrote this, both of them (just one part of the Bach, rather) included on the Audiomax CD along with the Krenek.)
