Navigation etc.

A recording by Toccata Classics (on the 3rd disc in their complete Tovey Chamber Music series) has been announced but is not available as of July 2018.

The composer may have considered the Fugue a 6th movement, hence the "attacca" between the Grave and the Fuga.

The Schott full score has 42 pp.
