Misc. Comments

Although one can consult the periodical Les Annales politiques et littéraires at the BNF (Bibliothèque Nationale de France), the weekly supplements which contained occasional music like this one and current entertainment events are missing. The picture of page 1 with the missing insert specified in its contents list, is added to this upload. Mention of a number of other works by the same composer can be found, some published by Eschig, such as Rêverie d'Automne for orchestra, but the present uploader has been unable to unearth any relevant biographical information with regard to this obscure presumably French musician.
