Misc. Comments

Although perhaps best-known in the version for viola and piano, this WorldCat entry indicates that this version is an arrangement, although the entry doesn't say by whom. Further, the Dutch Wikipedia page listed above does not list a viola version. So this page is tagged only for the 1902 violin or cello and piano version.

According to this WorldCat entry, the orchestra version seems to have been orchestrated by Hubert Bath, so it is not original.

According to this WorldCat entry, the piano version was dated 1929, and is an arrangement of the original violin or cello version.

No records have yet been found of the string quintet version.

Also relates to the song Berceuse, H.9 (see Wikipedia-nl.)
