Misc. Comments

Publication as Maximilian Robespierre by Meyer in Braunschweig noted in Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1850), p.130 (full score) and also in various piano reductions.

Usually as overture to ... as early as 1850, which seems to be about as early as it is mentioned (which does not by itself imply that Litolff wrote incidental music or an opera on the subject. Still, will tag as an overture.) - Schissel
