Misc. Comments

mentioned in Barbara Rosen's Arriaga the Forgotten Genius: The Short Life of a Basque Composer (page 6) (where she gives the premiere date and place though not the name of the group premiering.) (also is the composer's holograph, but am ever skeptical of works I hadn't even heard of. now I have! :) and no recording of Arriaga's "complete" string quartets should be complete without it, I suppose.- Schissel)
