Misc. Comments

Published during the composer's lifetime (unlike half of his string quartets), but materials are cryptic as to when. Recorded on K617/Phala K617054, 1995.

Possibly already composed in 1862; Fétis (1862) mentions 2 published string quartets by Gouvy and 4 unpublished... (string quartets, not counting wind or with piano.)
