Misc. Comments

A performance of a quartet (which one is unidentified) by Guido Peters, by the Gottesmann Quartet, in 1922, is mentioned in The Musical times and singing-class circular in their 1 Dec. 1922 issue. However, this one seems to have(?) been performed earlier still - 1911 - by the Fitzner quartet; description as "No.2" may reflect perhaps order of composition (unlikely though, since the A major was composed 1911-12...) but not that of publication or premiere (no.2 seems, at least, to have been premiered slightly before no.1, and the two published almost simultaneously in 1918.) - ES (Wiener almanach 1912, p.198: "Jänner [probably Januar? guessing from Google Snippet, sorry...] 1911 das Quartett Fitzner die neue Spielzeit (mit einem Manuskript- Streichquartett in C-Moll von Guido Peters)"
