I take Brian Wilson's correction of the track-listing as partly humorous, of course, when he points out that "track 9 is listed in the notes as Wiener-Gemüths Waltz but on the track-list and again on the back cover as Weiner-Gemüths. I take Wiener, as also per the Vanguard CD, (the pleasures of Vienna) rather than Weiner (the pleasures of wine) to be correct" but would add (perhaps pedantically) in the interests of exactitude that Weiner would mean a weeper, wimp or wet, and that Gemüt (the final h is a nod to the past, like olde in English), related to the English mood, means something like disposition or sensibility.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
