Andante sensibilissimo, S701c

? 1880s

Nothing is known of the origin of the Andante sensibilissimo, which must have been some kind of private musical joke since it is marked 'avec miaulement' ('with miaowing'); the manuscript is in the Library of Congress (scribbled at the foot of a page of sketches).

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

Nous ignorons les origines de l’Andante sensibilissimo, qui a dû être une sorte de blague musicale privée, comme le suggère la mention «avec miaulement»; le manuscrit est à la Library of Congress (griffonné au bas d’une page d’esquisses).

Von der Entstehung des Andante sensibilissimo ist nichts bekannt – es muß eine Art privater musikalischer Scherz gewesen sein, denn es trägt die Bezeichnung ‘avec miaulement’ (mit Miauen); das Manuskript liegt in der Library of Congress vor (am Ende einer Skizzenseite hingekritzelt).
