Misc. Comments

unknown translator, or simultaneously written in German by composer, or originally in German by Kulikov? Rubinstein quite fluent in German - spent considerable amount of time in Weimar before his break with Liszt e.g. - could be...? HMB has listed under German title but this does not surprise, usually has items listed in German or French.- Schissel

(No, text says German by Hermann Wolff ... unless he re-translated :))
