Misc. Comments

Plate number of piano reduction (by Hubert Léonard) at Dutch Royal Library has plate 22370 also (released 1878 according to HMB, if this is the same piano reduction.) (Schissel) (concerto is sometimes described as being "in D major", but this is belied by the score, where only a small section of the large-scale first movement - which begins and ends in minor- and also much of the finale, are in D major- by which standards Beethoven's 5th would be in C major. It may be because of language mistranslation or some other reason.)
