James Malcom: I found this most excellent early Valladao while ago, but only today did I finally find it again. This is the second one that I've found, i.e. P1380523

Is this the second oldest known Valladao after the 1867 P1360420 found by Keym?

'ASD': "Diese Aufgabe war eine der ersten, die der jugendliche Komponist veröffentlichte. Wenn sie auch noch nicht ganz so ausgefeilt ist, wie man es heute bei modernen Zweizügern findet, so ist das Stück doch immerhin für den Anfang als sehr gut zu bezeichnen."
