Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Re copyright date: there is a preface dated 1921 October 8. The preface could have been attached to a score released later. (Worldcat does not list any score of this work earlier published than 1989 - Antwerpen, België : E. Durlet-Fonds, 1989, and the recent release by MPH (2010)- which is worrisome, though they are not comprehensive.)

Misc. Comments

Op. 46 on first page of score, Op.43b in usual catalog? Somewhat confusing. And then the "Addenda" give it Op.45 besides. Op.43a is his flute concerto (also Symphonic Tale.)
