Misc. Comments

22 minutes seems a bit long- the recording we have of this work -is- 13 minutes. Is it much faster than commercial recordings (or an outlier because of repeats omitted?) (Ah, I see - the YouTube version is 22 minutes, the MIDI is 13. Still, the -average- duration then becomes 18 unless there are other recordings to take into account...)
• The Tchebourkina version (4 movements) is 22:07 on YouTube; the J.-P. Brosse version (2 movements : Prélude, Allegro) is 9:59.
