Misc. Notes Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1931), p.14 (which notes publication date, to help distinguish between items received in January 1931 that were published in 1930 and those that were published in 1931) claims this klavierauszug was published in 1931?? (Or maybe all it means was "received in 1931" after all and I've been misinterpreting but I think the appearance of "[1930]" even later in the year makes that less likely an interpretation.

Misc. Comments

Instrumentation can be (and should be) filled in the instrumentation fields from the full scores above (not just from the overtures but from the rest of the scores. Of course, the librettist's death in 1974 means that the majority of the work is PD-US-only, or PD-nowhere (given its 1930 publication date!), until 2025.
