Hrm. I have keys and etc. for the other violin sonatas (well, they're also now available on two Thorofon CDs as of the last month, but got the information out of Cobbett's Cyclopedia - sonata #2 op 33 in D, sonata #3 op 68 in d, 4 in E op 77, 5 in A op 95 ) and I'm pretty sure that Fuchs didn't teach Strauss. (I wrote that he did on a webpage myself once, but was mistaken...) Wish someone would record the operas and the mass (there may be a few- someone sent me a midi of a Kyrie from one of them, once, which was, I think, in d; the mass op 108 I see reference to is in G maj) but the former would probably take a deal of money. There's also a double bass sonata op 97 and three pieces for that combination op 96, a harp solo work op 85, and some assorted piano and 2-piano(?) works (also the two piano quartets, op 15 in g and op 75 in b) and the piano trios op 22 in C and op 72 in Bb. Have heard the first mvt of op 72, which is very fine I think...) Schissel 03:49, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Note - since the person who seems to have created almost all the content of this page seems to no longer have a W account, it may be as well if I make these changes??... Schissel 02:10, 15 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Four or five string quartets?[edit]

At (the Austrian national library) under an author search for Fuchs, Robert- fairly sure this is the same Robert Fuchs, the others having different jobs and not known to be composers on the side...

??? Assuredly not a new discovery, but not included in the Minguet edition, or in Grove, or... how odd! Schissel | Sound the Note! 14:03, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
