The old op. 57 is/was another string quartet, and it had no. 4 until now (with op. 59 as no. 5), but since I plan to rewrite it as a symphony or sinfonietta later, the heavily revised quartet op. 59 will from now on count as string quartet no. 4 . Mov. 1 of this quartet includes about 2/3 of old mov. 1 from op. 57 (from 1997). Movements 2-4 have been rewritten almost from scratch here in 2018
