Submitted to the Stelzner Competition in 1896.
The Draeseke had already been recorded in an alternate version as a cello quintet (2 cellos etc.), but in this recording, with the Krug, also had its premiere (in its original version, that is.) (The 2018 recording of the sextet on cpo uses double bass instead of 2nd cello.)
