Misc. Comments

  • Some information from Luttmann, Paul Hindemith: A Research and Information Guide.
  • Hindemith referred to this work, like most if not all works whose works he gave keys in their titles, "in Es" or "in C" or... not "in Es-dur" - and this is not the same thing, especially in the 20th century; it just means a work whose tonal center is E (in the case of this work), and says nothing about the modality. - Schissel
  • Hindemith wrote seven string quartets; Schott published all except for Op.2 (String Quartet No.1). The traditional numbering, with Op.10 (String Quartet No. 2) as the first quartet, is Schott's; throughout his lifetime and with a high degree of consistency, Hindemith numbered the Op.2 quartet as his first, and the remaining six quartets as Nos.2-7. The Op.22 quartet is even identified as No.4 on the program of its premiere performance. Since the early 1990s, all Schott printings of the quartets make use of Hindemith's own numbering.
