Misc. Comments

According to Wikipedia, wrote 3 piano concertos. Not in fact sure which of the three this is.

Adagio is a movement heading here rather than a tempo indication, I think- though I'm not sure. Rubinstein, the composer's piano pupil, was to do something similar in his 3rd symphony (Adagio: Andante) which is a confusing indication until one has worked that out (Adagio: Generic name for a slow movement. Andante: actual tempo. at least, as the composer may have seen it! :) )
