Misc. Comments

Published in Rotterdam by de Vletter in 1855, and in a new revision by Weygand in the Hague in 1877. (Breitkopf published a reprint or edition of the 2nd sonata Op.19 in 1899 - Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1899), p.66 - and may have done likewise for opus 23 around the same time??)

(BSB has a 1970 republication or edition - possibly edited by Martin Weyer, whose name is attached - by Forberg/Bad Godesburg besides.)

Recorded by Ursula Philippi in 1998 (released 1999) on the Sauer organ in Hermannstadt/Sibiu, Siebenbürgen/Transylvania (Romania) for MDG CD (CD contains Opp.11, 19, 23, 31). (And as one sees from AMG, some 6 other recordings also recently. - Schissel
