Misc. Comments

Premiere broken up over two days (August 4, first movement; August 5, variations and finale.) (Not positive whether the year is 1892 or 1893; the source - Musical Yearbook of the United States" -- is unclear. It does seem to be from the 1892-93 section of the yearbook, not the 1889-90.) - Schissel
