Misc. Comments estimates 1934 for date of publication, though still PD-US as the date is (apparently...?) not given on the score.

For composition date (1905), see the score manuscript sample here.

Also, this is by Rudolph Bergh (perhaps no middle name), not Ludvig Rudolph Sophus Bergh (1824-1909), who I think was his father or somesuch, perhaps.- Schissel

From an informal Tischer & Jagenberg plate search, this was actually perhaps composed before 1931 (Brandts Buys, 1931 , plate 1137) , or even 1926 (plate 903, Bartels' suite op.14 for flute and orchestra); and after 1919 (T & J 461). (So - 1920s.) Hrm. Moreover, they - merged? were bought by? bought? Wunderhorn-Verlag before 1923, and the combined T&J Wunderhorn-Verlag imprints sometimes carried "W. -- V." plates instead (might have been the same number sequence though- hrm- no. W 404 V in 1922, whereas T 489 J = 1919 - no.) (Must move this meandering to the page about Music Publishers in a bit.)
