Misc. Comments

Attribution to Hans Matthison-Hansen seems uncertain or anyway not definite (though still likely). They are attributed (on the cover anyhow) to H.M. Hansen, which might be-

Hanna (or Hauna) Marie Hansen (1875–1954), e.g. but this seems unlikely and too late in the day.

The Kuhlau string quartet is also dedicated, it seems, to a Chevalier Waagepetersen. The style seems middle-Romantic so some date of composition around that of the Kuhlau would not surprise. - Schissel
