Misc. Comments

January 24 1827 issue of Berliner Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung (pp.29-30, readable by Google Books) contains a brief review of this work in its Hofmeister edition. (Given usual delays between publication and reviews, and that this was a January issue, 1826 seems more likely; another work reviewed in the same issue is Beethoven's quartet op.127, published in early 1826.)

Indeed, mentioned earlier still in the November 1826 AMZ (p.76 - not a review, just in the list of recent arrivals.)
