Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project.
Page 2 contains a small score of the Moderato introduction of the symphony, with words (in Cyrillic- probably Russian?) set to the germinal introductory theme (it is possible that this theme predates the symphony as a song). The words to the song when run through a Google translation appear to be some kind of dedication to an Alexander Nikolaevich Winogradsky. (Luttmann refers to this but in an odd context, see below...)
