  • Quartet no.4 in D as played for Swedish Radio by the Grünfarbkvartett in 1956 (free to hear and download but not redistribute it seems. Listen to on page or mp3, ca.17 minutes. This recording has been rebroadcast over Euroclassic Notturno/BBC Through the Night/etc.). (Update : No longer available on the Swedish Radio site it seems, but another interpretation on YouTube).

Misc. Comments

VB 186 - er, maybe not? VB 182? hrm. Possibly Op.1 No.5 (which is VB 182). (ok. now confused.) (possibly first published during the composer's lifetime) ? - Schissel

Re No. 5 : Ouch, this is string quartet VB 182/ op.1 no.5 - there's a sound sample at allmusic.com (three of them; the first movement sound sample starts at around bar 102. Redirecting VB 186 to VB 182's probably a bad idea though considering that a page for VB 186 needs to be set up eventually though (if the material exists/is scanned in)... hrm. (There must be a different fix for this.)

There is a classic 1956 recording of no.4 in D VB 184 by the Grunfarb Quartet sometimes broadcast on Swedish Radio (see NCRecordings link above for downloadable version thereof), in addition to a recording of 4 of them for Musica Sveciae by the Lysell Quartet in 1990, another recording of some of them by the Joseph-Martin-Kraus-Quartett in 2000, and the complete set (I think) performed on Carus by the Salagon Quartet.
