Navigation etc.

Arguably in A minor, despite presence of 3 sharps (A major) key signature throughout. Only the cello and piano opening bars give a distinct "A major" feel to the proceedings; as the violin enters at bar 5 we have at least a fair amount of minor mode (though a fair amount of major mode too) -the work decides to end in minor at last, anycase (last 7 bars). Hrm. Anyone else want to have a look (and a listen, if there's a performance to be heard, and decide whether it comes off as major or minor, not "sound unheard" quite the contrary but rather page unread?)
