Misc. Comments

Piano duet version has different structure, suggesting the work may have undergone revision perhaps after its premiere? (the third movement ends on an F major chord in the full score - at least, that available at Sibley - and in the Kleinmichel-arranged reduction, it ends on a half-cadential dissonance and the finale begins not Allegro, but Maestoso, with different music - too great a difference in fact to seem just a heightening for effect by the arranger?)

Commercially recorded at least three times.

First US performance was in 1893 or earlier (Chicago in 1893, Thomas; 1894, New York, Seidl. According to a report in a 1913 New York times, it was performed often between 1893 and 1913.) - Schissel
