  1. Originally, this movement was part of Brindilles, as can be deduced from Legley's note in the autograph: In werkelijkheid sinds lang begonnen, gebruikt deze sonate als trage bew. een stuk dat oorspronkelijk deel uitmaakte van "Brindilles" en dat op 5.XII.70 geschreven werd voor de te jong overleden Jan Brys. [Actually started a long time ago, this sonata uses as its slow movement a piece that originally was part of "Brindilles" and that was composed on 5.XII.70 for Jan Brys, who died too young.]
