Misc. Notes Mostly good manuscript copy parts (by composer?) but crossouts in Adagio of first violin part, e.g. Could be an early 20th century copy by someone, especially considering the ".19"- see below.

Misc. Comments

Date at end of first violin part reads? 18.1.19 (January 18 1819?) No other Mascia works for comparison but seems early to be receiving the opus number 99 - not sure I'm understanding correctly. (Maybe it's the date a library received the manuscript and means January 18 1919- don't know. There are a couple of other notations.) (Schissel) (... unless it means, copyist finished on January 18, 1919?)


Note: numbers at end seem to be library processing numbers, not dates, judging from other Mascia manuscripts?

Amended thought - the quintets opp.100 on were written during the 1860s, suggesting a similar date here. (Schissel) (further amend - lack of bowing, insufficient phrasing odd though, more typical in its way of the 18th or earlier than of the 19th century - was he really a string instrument player? )

Performed in June 2015 in Ohio.
