Misc. Comments

Found in the Ricordi catalog of 1843. The A minor Andante siciliano could be a separate brief introductory movement- it does come to a full close with a closing double bar - but might be an introduction preceding the A major Allegro? (Or then again, perhaps not.) One of at least two works "per Conversazione" by the composer, including also a divertimento "per conversatione" for 3 violins, viola and cello (or rather violin with accompaniment by string quartet) in E published 1837.
