Misc. Notes The movement order has been changed.
The color scanned Cello Part identified by the soloist's signature stamp ("Paul Loué") is added as a curious example of a heavily reworked score with modifications taken from Alfredo Piatti's version. The main cover design is similar to the one adopted by Augener in London.
