Misc. Notes:

This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. (#178701) Possibly a 1913 or following reprint, since page 3 mentions Atterberg’s violin concerto (not composed before 1913, probably not published before 1919.)

Misc. Comments

In one movement, though what feels very much like a second movement starts at G a little after "Poco agitato". considers a "second movement" to start at Quasi andante and a third at "Allegro impetuoso". (No attempt has been made to include every tempo change in this mercurial work, just perhaps the major ones.) - Schissel
