Date 1826 from inscription on RISM copy of score. Op.150 published 1829 by A. Farrenc. Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 12e année (35e de la collection), Nº 5, 31 Janvier 1829, p.80, r.35.
The Allegro - Andantino - (alternating) scheme of the first movement may have been suggested (this is a guess...) by something Beethoven does in a few of his sonatas and quartets (especially Op.130)...
cpo announces a recording of string quartet "Op.105 No.1" in A minor which is probably this one (the body of their announcement confirms as much), released March 28 2022.
