Heavily marked in blue pencil with fingerings and abridgements by the former owner of the score, Mr.Paul Coutan, a then student at the Paris Conservatoire with Paul Bazelaire, and who is among the crowd of students in the photograph of the Salle Gaveau auditorium with the organ in the background. Paul Coutan's father, Pierre, was a cello professor there possibly before 1914 and certainly after the end of WW1, so he could also claim prior ownership. The Coutans often hosted Pablo Casals when the latter was travelling and performing in their area (Moulins, Vichy).
