Review - Karlsruhe tagblatt 23 February 1932. See below for copy of original German review - (1)
Translation from German: The Musical guests who filled the Hall of Hebel Lodge to the last seat could take part at an interesting and valuable concert. Dr Richard Fuchs is not only an architect of standing but showed himself as a composer of noteworthy degree, which was surprising for the uninitiated. And this in the difficult sphere of chamber music. For as much the works must be acknowledged with genuine admiration, a string quartet proved strong inventive faculty and form and moreover mastership in this style of chamber music.
