Misc. Comments

Whether originally for piano is hard to tell but the score does not say, as sometimes in such cases, "as played by..."- this seems to be more in the way of a remembrance gift on behalf of a departed friend, or something like, and so piano instrumentation rather than reduction seems quite possible?...
