Misc. Notes Later than 1845-6 composition date for work? -- Daverio confirms this date, -- this manuscript is perhaps of a revised edition, or has notations from rather later than composition was completed. Not sure... it is signed, fwiw.

Misc. Comments

according to Daverio (in his Robert Schumann: herald of a "new poetic age"), mostly composed in 1845 but polished and completed during early 1846.-Schissel
Urtext also printed by Peters with plate number 6182 (ca. 1880). No significant differences between it and the Breitkopf & Härtel edition above.
