Misc. Comments

This complete proof edition is part of the Konstantinoff archives, and is the second of two versions therein. A prior version is in an even worse condition, eaten away by humidity and mould, due to the dire circumstances in which they were found (see the uploader's talk page for details). This score bears the number 7, which may mean anything. The composer, who dedicated his work to the Hamburg publisher Kurt Broschek, intended it as a gift copy for his "mentor and friend", Eugène Bigot, as the signed autograph on page 2 testifies. Eugène Bigot (1888-1965) enjoyed a distinguished career as a conductor and pedagogue and was probably instrumental in K.Konstantinoff being appointed as the conductor of the Orchestre National de la Radio during the war years, since Bigot had contributed toward its foundation, together with Inghelbrecht, in 1934.
