Misc. Comments

Also published by Tobias Haslinger.

Bellak wrote several other works based on, or including sections based on, melodies from Martha, including his Shower of Melodies of 1855 or so, his Buds from the Opera for 2 pianos of 1857, a collection of organ works published in the 1880s, for three. (Other operas were similarly treated.)
