Arranged, in 1829, as his 2nd string quartet (with a new slow movement and a number of other revisions).

Published by Weigl in a pianoforte arrangement (plate 443. Some library catalog entries give this mistakenly as "oeuv. 443", as in opus number 443, but 443 is Weigl's publishing plate.) This may have been its first publication.
