Misc. Notes This orchestration constitutes a voiceless version of No.17 from the opera. It does not include No.8, the "Dance of the Polovetsian Maidens" (F major, 6/8). This score was also issued by M.P. Belaieff, Universal Edition (Philharmonia), and Boosey & Hawkes. Kalmus' 1933 copyright claim is bogus.
