Misc. Notes:

This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Daverio (Schumann: Herald of a "New Poetic Age", 1997, p.239 (&ff.)) refers to this as the Brahms-Wüllner edition. He also cautions that, contrary to the impression given by the movement-ending double-bars after the first two movements in this edition, reviews of this symphony after a 1841 performance in the A.M.Z. mentioned specifically that all 5(?) movements played _without pause_ - not just the last two.

Misc. Comments
