Misc. Comments

According to WA Eddie, Opp.16 Nos.4, 5 and 6 were published but Opp.16 Nos. 1, 2 and 3 are missing. ("Charles Valentin Alkan: His Life and His Music", p.35.) He gives 1834 for publication date for all 3, and notes that Alkan probably first encountered the music on which Op.16/5 is based in 1833. - ES
