Misc. Comments

  • This collection consists of arrangements of themes from these works. 3 of the works are arranged for violin and piano, 3 are arranged for flute and piano, 4 are arranged for "quartet" (string quartet?) and 5 are arranged for flute, cornet (or clarinet) in B, violin, cello, piano. Without a full upload of all 15, it will not be possible to fully tag this. For Halévy's L'Eclair (No.11) of 1870, the title page says violin and piano, but the set includes parts for the quintet version, although the flute part is higher than the violin part and is probably the melody line
  • The Library of Congress has all of these except for No.3, Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. In order to access them, do not search by "Wittig". Rather use "Lee & Walker" plus a keyword from the title.
