Misc. Comments

Premiere date from Strong on Music: Reverberations, 1850-1856, p.184 of Vera Brodsky Lawrence's edition of George Templeton Strong (1820–75, not the composer of the same name)'s diaries.

Eliza Ripley comments on several Strakosch and (William) Wallace works in her Social Life in Old New Orleans (1912) (pp.148–149 or so) (republished in 1999 and previewable @ Google Books; if the original can be scanned in (ah, it has indeed been - see here) it would be good to have, I think!). She says briefly "and "Flirtation Polka," to Mme. Lavillebeuvre, who was a delightful pianist and merited something more inspiring than that" - Schissel

(Republished in 1858/59 as his Op.25, Morceau élégant, in a new edition- see Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1859), p.9.)
