Misc. Comments

  • Music subsequently used in the opera of the same name (q.v.) Plate no. BSS 34000a was apparently first used for the autograph facsimile (65p.), according to Stephen Hinton in SW (Sämtliche Werke) 11/2 (p. 184), but was later applied to a 100-page full score as well. The edition no. 3509 (Schott London: 3509a) and plate number BSS 34052 have been applied to both the 90 and 100-page miniature scores.
-Paul Hindemith: A Research and Information Guide
  • From the Opera of the same name, each movement come from the following parts of the Opera:
I. Engelkonzert (The overture)
II. Grablegung (Orchestral interlude from the last act)
