A 1986 performance organized by, I think, the Empfingen town council led to a 1987 LP from Breitkopf's recording arm, the only commercial recording of this work so far. HMB and raff.org have 1882 (though early 1882- might have been published in 1881 - for HMB) for the publication of opus 212. One of Raff's very last works (he died the year it was published); more detailed description above. (Schissel)
