Misc. Comments

Wotquenne gives "Frankfurt, 1737; Berlin, 1744" (or 1743, by the CPE Bach online website chronology) - dates of composition and revision, not publication.

(The set Wq.65 is given by Wotquenne as a "vollständige sammlung" - a complete collection- of all his unedited piano sonatas in ms during the composer's lifetime, though some works from the set were published in Farrenc's large collection.) This one was published by the CPE Bach Edition in 2013 in any event.
