Somehow and oddly Kaun opus 39 appears in HMB 1893 page 319 as "erstes quintett" for 2 violins, viola and 2 cellos- before either the opus 28 string quintet or the opus 39 piano quintet was published. ?! (Op.39 published 1901 according to the Werkverzeichnis, by Anton J. Benjamin before being published by Rahter (which was later purchased by Benjamin, interestingly.))
This is the same work as Opus 28- transcribed for piano quintet and lowered a tone. (Source: Cobbett)
A performance 1906-1-14 in Leipzig of the quintet is mentioned, as a new work (növitat) though not necessarily as a premiere, in, Jahrgang XXXVII, No.3, 18. Januar 1906, p.58.
