Misc. Notes Ok, this is a right mess...This file needs to be replaced because
The first violin part here belongs to a B-flat major/G minor quartet (presumably his 4th quartet), the other three parts to the same quartet as in the Opus 5 file (the quartet in F minor.) I don't think Dancla was a Milhaud before the letter, intending for these string parts to be played together and at once, so someone needs to ask CWRU if there's a problem on their end that can be fixed....

Misc. Comments

There are 14 Dancla quartets, the last pub in 1900, Op 195.

Actually, there's more like at least 23. Where do you get 14? (At least, see recording of no.23...) -ah, my mistake, that was a recording of no.23 by someone else with Dancla's no.8. Ow. Still, Dancla did write "Drei leichte Quartette für 2 Violinen, Viola und Violoncello, op. 208" (in C, G and D; this set recently republished, but mentioned in The Strad in 1908, so I'm guessing Op.208 are public domain (HMB mentions them in 1897)- hope someone has them and can scan them in :) )- so he sort-of wrote 17, more or less... but... not 23. I was mistaken. Sorry...
Also a quatuor mélodique Op.188 (for the usual quartet combination?) and lots of works for 4 violins, etc. So 18 quartets usually-assembled?... - ES
