Misc. Comments

Co-composed with Arthur Hartmann (1881-1956) apparently (Guiraud the first movement, Hartmann the 2nd? Not at all sure, other references do not corroborate what seems to be written, though not clearly, on the score.)

Arthur Hartmann certainly was precocious if he composed the second movement at three years of age!. Perhaps it was George Hartmann instead? Carolus
