(Bram) Eldering is mentioned in that May 13 1899 performance (in a survey - Umschau - of performances, not a detailed critique/review.)
The Larchmere Quartet's performance of the string quartet was made available in early 2016 by Naxos as part of a download also including their recording of Krehl's clarinet quintet.
Piening is mentioned in our articles on Gernsheim's and Marteau's cello concertos as the premiering soloist.
