Programme note by Professor Niecks on the history of the Italian String Quartet

Notes: 

It is difficult to be certain which Boccherini string quartet was performed on this occasion due to the fact that the numbering system has since changed. However, the key and movement titles suggest that it is the one currently referred to as op. 24, no. 6.
