Misc. Comments

Boosey print has "The music composed expressly for Madame Lemmens-Sherrington" in addition to the dedication to Miss Villebois. Further note: comparison of the endings, for instance, shows differences in unsubtle details- two examples in a brief work, the fff Allegro ending of the 1879 version has become (assuming the Boosey version - edition, I must now assume!! - is later and not earlier - as NLA seems to assume also) - "ff pesante" instead - so a change from ff to ff pesante rather than ff to fff allegro for the penultimate bars; and the final cadence is voiced differently, in the new version- Schissel
