Misc. Comments

Publications in Berg's series were apparently issued with parts that included cross cueing which allowed the performers of the small orchestra version to play important passages of instruments only appearing in the large orchestra version. The instrumental parts used in both versions are identical. The piano part also seems to work as a solo arrangement.
