Navigation etc.

Dance of the Sylphs was published as a piano solo in 1898. The full suite was performed (and published?) in 1901 (and 1904 respectively?) - the rest of the suite may not have been composed before then.

Full orchestral score and parts are in the Fleisher collection ("5925 Entire Work") of the Free Library of Philadelphia.
