Misc. Comments

WorldCat gives 2 editions of this:

  • Muzgiz, 1931
  • Mercury Music; there are 2 entries for this edition, one estimates the date at "[194-?]", and the other at "[1951?]".

However the instrumentation differs between these -- the Muzgiz edition also includes a piano. Since IMSLP does not have that edition uploaded, it is difficult to say whether that part merely doubles the other parts and can be dispensed with. The Mercury edition gives W. Alexander Jones as an editor, not an arranger, so presumably, they felt the original instrumentation was without piano.
For the moment, this is tagged without piano.
