Misc. Comments

  • Usually described as string quartet no.1 in F minor until fairly recently when a quartet in C major "op.2" (1914–1915) (a substantial, 35 minute work, contemporary with other works that Hindemith did publish), was discovered, I believe, among Hindemith's papers, was published, and since then has been a number of times recorded, often as part of complete Hindemith quartet cycles, turning his 6 quartets into 7 and moving the numbers of the later quartets (1 to 6) up one each... (Schissel)
  • 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 above) 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.
