  • The 4th movement consists of 3 variations on the "National Austrian Melody - God preserve the Emperor - by I. Haydn"
  • This is an arrangement of SERENATA for 3 flutes and alto flute ( or Clarinet) by Sigismund Ritter von Neukomm in E flat major - here transposed to F - Major for 4 flutes - Probably was the publisher who uses the name A.B. Furstenau - The Original autograph its at BNP - Paris "

There are, however, 4 quartets by Fürstenau (for flute and string trio, not four flutes) . Could you provide a link or some other evidence re the Neukomm , at which point one will either see if there is a page in Neukomm's category or create one and move it there...
