Misc. Notes Multiple errors discovered in the parts, many of them non-obvious and fatal to ensemble thanks to the composer’s parsimony with time signatures.

Mvt. I Cello, rehearsal no. 16 “con sourdine” could be spurious.
Mvt. II Viola, 2 measures before 18, dotted quarter rest(?) missing.
2 before 20, “otez sourdine” must be spurious.

 Cello,  5,   first measure of rest has 3 beats, second measure 2.

Mvt. V Violin, 2 “sourdine” for Violin 2 alone?

 Cello,  4,   first 2 notes should be eighths.

Mvt. VI Violin 1, 3rd measure of 6, first rest should be eighth.
4th of 8, first note should be eighth.
7th of 26, eighth rest missing.
-- Viola, 5th of 3, measure has 2 quarters.
5th of 9, quarter rest missing (end of measure?).

   24,   eighth rest missing (end of measure?).
3rd of 24, eighth rest missing (end of measure?).
5th of 25, spurious slur.
3 before 27, first eighth should be pizzicato.
8th of 33, should be C natural?.
Cello, 7, rest should be eighth.
12 before 7, measure has 2 quarters.

3rd of 7, rest should be eighth.
8 “con sourdine” missing. Good luck!

A Vienna performance (by the Rosé quartet?) is mentioned in the Musikalisches Wochenblatt of June 28 1906, page 479 (where it is described- oddly, given the keys of the quartet- as his Serenade für Streichquartett in G dur, Op.61.)

There are at least a couple of other works by Jaques-Dalcroze for string quartet that were published, including "Rythmes de danse : trois suites de pièces brèves" (pub.1922, Heugel, arrangement of some of the same works for piano) and "Quatuor à cordes", published ca.1904 by Enoch. This latter string quartet has been recorded commercially.
