Editor: The Hellmesberger Quartet

Founded 1849. Original membership; Karl Heissler, Mathias Durst and Carl Schlesinger. 1855 line-up: Durst, F.Dobyhal, Borzaga. In 1858 Bernhard Cossmann became the cellist, then in 1859 Heinrich Röver. Reinhold Hummer, Joseph Sulzer and David Popper also appeared as cellist. In 1867 Adolf Brodsky became second violinist, and in 1870, Joseph Hellmesberger jnr. took over. In 1883 the quartet included three Hellmesbergers, with Ferdinand Hellmesberger as cellist. Viola, J. Maxintsak, a pupil of Joseph snr. After his father's retirement in 1889, Joseph jnr. took over the quartet's leadership: the other members were Julius Egghart (violin 2), Theodor Schwendt (viola), and his brother Ferdinand (cello). The quartet was dissolved in 1905, when Ferdinand moved to Berlin.

The editions that appeared from Universal Edition in the early 20th century as 'edited' by the Hellmesberger Quartet were evidently compiled from the sets of parts that had been used by the quartet and appear to represent the bowings that were marked in these parts at that time. Their use as a source for these editions may have been overseen by Joseph Hellmesberger jnr, but it is equally possible that they were seen through the press by an in-house editor.
