Misc. Comments

A Burden is more or less synonymous with a passacaglia/chaconne/ostinato, or the theme of one. A sonata in D minor by Davies - this one? - was introduced in one of two concerts in 1896 (October 27, November 5) by Jacoby. (This may have been the London premiere of the work, not the world premiere.)
