Misc. Comments

Published first (as "Old Acquaintances in New Dresses") in 1854, (revised?) in 1876 by G. André. (The first versions are dedicated affectionately to the Left Hand but seem? to require 2 hands?)

As the name suggests, Augustin is indeed based on Ach, du lieber Augustin (to some this may be more familiar from the scherzo to String Quartet No.2, Op.10, by Arnold Schoenberg.) - Schissel
