Misc. Comments

It is uncertain if Rheinberger ever arranged the accompaniment for orchestra, but he did separately publish under the same opus number the overture arranged for orchestra.
UPDATE: Rheinberger only arranged the overture for orchester (→ Hans-Josef Irmen: Thematisches Verzeichnis der musikalischen Werke Gabriel Josef Rheinbergers).
