External Links RISM (entry for autograph manuscript)

Navigation etc.

RISM has 7 entries for this work, only one of which is an autograph manuscript. This page will be tagged for the instrumentation in that entry ("S, A, B, vl (2), vla, vlc, bc"), since copyists can sometimes alter instrumentations to suit their particular performance circumstances. However, there is an anomaly in that entry in that the "scoring summary" includes a chorus, while the "scoring" in the "Further notes" section does not. Tagged for both, and hopefully at some point a scan of the autograph manuscript will be uploaded and one or the other tag can be removed.
