Cesar Franck's string quartet was completed and premiered in 1890 shortly before the composer's death; he did not live to see the work published. Now Barenreiter, together with the ''Association Internationale Cesar Franck'', presents the string quartet in a scholarly-critical edition for the first time. This publication draws on the first edition, the engraver’s copy used for the first edition and the sketches with their many crossed out attempts which contain an earlier version of the first movement as well as a copy of the autograph. Franck’s letters and a set of hand-written parts which he produced for Eugene Ysaye’s string quartet have also been taken into account.
