Extra Information Possibly String Quartet No.8? (or possibly even later in ordering if quartet op.20 mentioned in one source is by this Praeger/Präger, making opus 34 not quartet no.4, followed by the 3 of op.43 at any rate so that this would be at least quartet no.8 or possibly later.)

Navigation etc.

Unusually for the estimated date (ca.1825) the slow movement is in the flat 2nd degree (D major.)

Re date estimation: ca.1825 is given by SBB. His next publication, Op.48, Trois Polonoises pour Violon avec acc. de 2 VI., Viola et Vclle., appears in Staats und gelehrte zeitung des hamburgischen unpartheyischen correspondenten in the July 9 1830 issue (next to Christian Friedrich Nohr's symphony, which one knows from HMB was indeed published that year.) So sometime in the vicinity of 1825–1830 seems a good range, will try to find something more specific for opus 47.

Part of the confusion too is that Stabikat/SBB has this catalogued as "quartet no.6" which seems odd with quartets 1-3, op.13, no. 4 op.34 and nos. 5-7 op.43 preceding.
