The first quartet in this Opus was the last one I transcribed, thus completing my first full set of string quartets. Note there was a long hiatus (read: laziness) period between completion of the first and the other movements.
The first movement of this Quartet never fails to remind me, starting from bar 18, of Mozart’s String Quintet in the same tonality (the No.3 KV 515).
