Navigation etc.

The original (1862) version for cello and piano now has a separate page; see Related Works. In this version, the third movement is replaced by a Gavotte and the Finale by a Tarantelle.
The Romance (No.4) is the same as the Romance, Op.67 for horn and piano. (Ironically? As of 2018 no one has still seen fit to provide us with a cello and orchestra version, i.e. full score and/or parts, of this version, instead of a reduction.)
