During the 1930s, the Prisca Quartet recorded several sets for Deutsche Grammophon-Polydor. Besides this Bruckner quintet, there were three Mozart quartets (one of which is available from Pristine Audio), and quartets by Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert and Verdi. Oddly, all but the Haydn and Bruckner were released on ten-inch discs!
