Discussion

I have my doubts that this is the original orchestration as Strauss the Elder wrote it. It is probably a transcription for "theatre orchestra" issued in the late 1800s. Kalmus, naturally, obliterates all of the original publisher info on their reprints, so I can't tell a great deal by looking at the parts. They're probably late 19th century, issued by a publisher in a German-speaking country (most likely Germany or Austria). Spina was the publisher of many of Johann Jr.'s work, but I don't think that was the case for Johann Sr. Carolus 02:43, 19 April 2009 (EDT)
Appears to be arranged by Atzler. I have updated the page.--Homerdundas 18:07, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Reading the original orchestration here, there is not a piccolo part. While in recordings and film clips, I did hear and see piccolo playing. The full score version I uploaded does have piccolo part, and the part is identical to the recordings and film clips. I wonder if the version that is most widely played today is a transcription of the original orchestration, and also if the version I uploaded is a transcription, I would like to know, if possible, the arranger of the piece. Many thanks.--Alan850627 02:40, 12 December 2010 (CDT)
