Misc. Notes Study score. Scanned at 600 dpi. Based on Fleisher Collection materials, according to the preface. (Actually, 1983 or 2011 may be the first time the work has appeared in full score, judging from Worldcat; in 1924 it appeared as piano-conductor score and parts, not sure where 1925 comes from, 1983 saw some sort of new edition, Marty Jenkins in 2011 may have been responsible for collating the parts into a score - or not? Unclear.)
