Misc. Comments

Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 26e année (40e de la collection), Nº 50, 16 Décembre 1837, p.615, r.287. (Versailles: Pfeiffer)

Probably also the set of variations noted, without composer's name, on p.168 of BdlF 1837.

This theme is, as noted in BNF, actually from Le philtre by Auber; the opera's title and composer are misnamed. (Note: could someone verify that the theme is not from Donizetti's opera- a rather obvious mistake one would think if we have a Donizetti fan anywhere on "staff" - and correct the Related Works line if so? - ES)
