Maximilian Steinberg-String Quartets recorded?

(1/1)

Scion7:
This is actually more of a "name that performing group" - Steinberg (1883-1946) wrote two quartets,  Op.5 (1907) & Op. 16 (1925) - neither is available on this side of the former Warsaw Pact line - can any of our Russian friends tell me if they were ever recorded/released in Russia?

Apparently, he mostly resided in St. Petersburg for the vast majority of his life (whether or not he stuck it out during the Nazi-Germany invasion attempt, I don't know - I don't have detailed biographical info on him - not even a complete works list.)  The first quartet is published in the West, but not the 2nd, from what I've been able to see.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have searched for the string quartets and found this website offering 2 or 3 minutes of the String Quartet #1:


https://www.editionsilvertrust.com/steinberg-qt-1.htm


"Steve Jones" is the source for the performance snippets:  perhaps you can discover through the publisher where the recording came from.


Orchestral works are available on YouTube: e.g.

Scion7:
I believe he is part of a local group of musicians that make samples for the Editions Silvertrust from various scores; dusty words on a page are not enough to lure the buyers.  I heard those earlier - the fourth movement especially made me want to find some recording of both quartets.  :blank:

Perhaps if you bought the score and offered it to a  (young?)  string quartet, they would be interested in rare/neglected works.

Scion7:
Perhaps if you loaned me your professional recording studio,
I might consider it.   ;D
