Misc. Comments

It was written not for the harmonium but for an instrument, the Harmonichord, that had just been constructed by - to quote Stephan D. Lindeman ("Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto", p.54) - Gottfried and Friedrich Kaufmann (two years earlier) in 1809. (Continuing) The harmonichord (Lindeman also writes harmonicon) was a type of "sostenente" (?) piano that - he here quotes Alexandr Buchner's New Grove Dictionary article on the Sostenente Piano - "resembled an upright piano, {and} a long cylinder above the keyboard, rotated by two pedals, set in vibration a rod connected with the strings." (So, hmcd tag (harmonichord).)
