  • New York Times mentioned a performance in that city in the issue of February 9, 1912, performed by the Philharmonic Society, the composer conducting, Ernest Hutcheson at the keyboard.
  • MS score and parts (of this, his cello concerto (1917), piano concertino, and orchestral aubade also) are at the Fleisher Collection of the Free Library of Philadelphia.
  • According to Hyperion program notes, the printed version is a slightly revised one: at least the end of the 1st movement is different from that in the full score.
