Misc. Comments

The title page says "Trio pour le Piano-Forte avec accompagnement d'un Violon & Violoncelle obliges", but the first page of the keyboard part says "cembalo".

Also, while the Andantino is fairly substantial it seems fairly clearly introductory. Does the publisher or composer assign "D minor" to the work, or is that our guess? It's a D major work with an extended D minor slow introduction, if you ask me...
