Misc. Comments

The Breitkopf parts mistakenly give the key as "A major", but the first movement begins and ends in F minor and the finale begins in F minor and ends in F major (and the work is rightly known as his quintet in F-sharp minor.) Also, the slow movement (in B) makes more sense related to a F-sharp tonality than a A major one (... not that, in 1906, that would have been noticeably surprising one way or the other.)
