Navigation etc.

This original manuscript (710 measures) was found by the uploader in Kostia Konstantinoff's archives. It bears the composer's (self-spelled Clement Kortchmarioff) unmistakable handwriting, together with his corrections in ink and glued on strips of paper. The score was stamped under n°206 by a music library which may be that of Kiev (to be confirmed). It is undated. The composer's Latin spelling is sometimes erratic, apart from his own name, his set of variations should read : Variations sur un thème juif
