Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Judging from its place in the HMB "table" (since Op.10 was published in 1830 and this is Op.8, etc. etc. ...) this may not be the first appearance of the work in print. However, a 1820-1840 search of Google Books seems to turn up nothing here. Interestingly for a publication from 1846, the title page says in small print, "Augener & Co. in London". I did think Augener didn't exist in 1846. Maybe this is a slightly changed later reprint with the same plates.

Misc. Comments

Grove doesn't list the alternate 2nd cello in lieu of double bass. Accordingly, it has been tagged for the original version only.

But it's in the file with the other parts, with the same plate number...retagged. KGill talk email 19:48, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
"Original version only" - The Augener edition postdates 1853 of necessity and hence is not the original edition, in any case. The 1846 Kistner edition does say "Sextett für Pianoforte, Zwei Violinen, viola, violoncell u[nd] contrabass (oder zwei violoncelles)" right on the (piano part) title page, though! - Schissel

(Note: Performed from ms in 1842 in London, and reviewed in the Musical World, May 5 1842 issue, p.140.
