Navigation etc.

Instrumentation given @ notes to Timpani recording more scaled-down than that in DNB link (but has timpani and harp where the latter does not. The notes- by excellent musicologist Harry Halbreich- claim that the work does not in fact bear a dedication to the soloist who premiered the work- perhaps the dedication was added to the reduction?)
