Misc. Comments

The origin of the cello/flute/violin versions

Grove Music lists this work as being for horn and piano. They do not list any other versions by Beethoven himself. However, the cello version was offered for sale to the public by Beethoven's publisher during his lifetime, so the general consensus is that if he did not do the arrangement himself, he at least must have approved of it being done, since he raised no objection to the sale of this work during his lifetime. Accordingly, all versions except horn will be found under arrangements.
