Complete Catalogue

A complete catalogue of Bottesini's works, with BOT. numbers, is included in (needs verification): Luigi Inzaghi et al.: Giovanni Bottesini: Virtuoso del contrabbasso e compositore. Milano: Nuove Edizioni, 1989. This catalog is not entirely compatible with IMSLP practices, as arrangements of the same piece (be it under a different title) are given different catalogue numbers.
