Misc. Comments

If there is an opera called Messidor that was current on the French concert calendar in the first half-odd of the 1880s, I'm not an expert at all- I learn of Bruneau's Messidor but it was written in 1897, four years after Corbin's death apparently? So I am assuming this is a piano version of a concert overture, not a transcription of an overture to an existing opera for the piano. However, new facts welcome please... (Schissel)

Note: it could just be Messidor by Spyridon Samaras. (Schissel)
