A performance of a sextet of Bertini's (this one? no.1?) was praised (the performance, at least) in the Gazette musicale (Concerts de la Salle Chantereine, p.107) of 29 March 1835 (it took place a week prior), probably a year after the publication of this work.
Biography of Bertini in the early 1835 edition of Fétis lists 3 sextets. So unless one or more was lost (quite possible of course), one guesses at least composed by 1835 (in 1833, actually- later edit). As it says 3 Sextets (Lemoine) this suggests that it's counting only published works, and the Lemoine plate does seem to corroborate. - Schissel
According to Beyls, "Marche Funèbre 29 Juillet" refers to the last day of the Revolution of 1830 (see e.g. July Revolution.)
Published by Breitkopf und Härtel in 1839 (see).
