Navigation etc.

  • Newberry Library gives 1890 as a more likely date.
  • The cover page bears these mentions: «Ouvrage ayant remporté le 1er Prix au Concours de la Société des Compositeurs (1887). Déposé selon les Traités Internationaux (1889)». So the Fantaisie Op. 26 has certainly been composed before 1887.
  • It is unknown whether the English horn is a 3rd oboe part, or part of the 2nd oboe. Until a full score is uploaded, it will not be possible to tell.
