Subj: [kl] The Cassation
Date: Wed, 31 Aug 2005 18:13:56 -0400

Dave Ross of El Paso kindly sent me the following note.

"The Cassation you mention is by Georg Lickl (1769-1843). I have
a photocopy of the original title page, and Kurt Birsak published
an article some years ago in one of the Mozarteum Yearbooks on
the mis-attribution of this piece."

I thank Dave for the information. It confirms what was
established subjectively by the editors of the 6th edition of the
Koechel catalog.

You will note that I never said anything about the work itself.
I am not qualified to state if a work is good or bad. So I have
not said, "That awful work..." or "That heavenly composition..."

It just isn't by Mozart and Albert J. Andraud has a lot of
explaining to do when he gets done with the Sibelius Swan of
Tuenola with the heavenly orchestra.
