Misc. Comments

1921 (late) (score); 1922 (parts)

  • Hindemith wrote seven string quartets; Schott published all except for Op.2 (String Quartet No.1). The traditional numbering, with Op.10 (String Quartet No. 2) as the first quartet, is Schott's; throughout his lifetime and with a high degree of consistency, Hindemith numbered the Op.2 quartet as his first, and the remaining six quartets as Nos.2-7. The Op.22 quartet is even identified as No.4 on the program of its premiere performance. Since the early 1990s, all Schott printings of the quartets make use of Hindemith's own numbering.
