Misc. Comments

Looks very much more like a 2-piano score to me. Piano duet scores have the parts on alternating pages.- ES (and the plate indeed (see Choudens) looks rather high- maybe a misprint for 16067...?)

[Response to comment] This score is for piano 4 hands. The two parts are played separately on the upper and lower sections of the keyboard. Note that the lower part, with the exception of only several lines, is notated with two bass clefs, and the upper with two trebles. jirsay
