Extra Information Some publications include the Scherzo in A-flat major as the closing 8th piece of the piano set.
Glazunov's orchestration of the Suite from 1889 makes the 7th movement the Scherzo, with the Nocturne inserted inside it as a trio section). A revised edition edited by Lyapunov published by Bessel was advertised in Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1910), p.40.
