Misc. Comments

  • Advertised in The Gazeta of Madrid for sale in 1 October 1776, so published by 1776 or earlier.
  • No.5 (WK 65) recorded by the Salomon Quartet on the 1995 CD "Quartet in 18th-century England" for Hyperion. Set published 1769? according to back cover of the Hyperion CD.
Was this published without the composer's cooperation? As it is all under one opus number, there is no reason to make it a "Collection" otherwise- quite the opposite (at least, I cannot think of a single good reason to make this a Collections page.) - ES
