OPERATIC WORKS.

Der HBIlenberg, opera. Libretto by Schikaneder. Schikaneder's Theatre, Vienna, 1795.

Das schOne Milchmadchen oder der Guckkasten, operetta. Na- tional Theatre, Vienna, 1797.

Der Kopf ohne Mann, operetta. Schikaneder's Theatre (?), Vienna, 1798.

Das Trojanlsche Pferd, operetta. Libretto by Schmieder. Written In 1799 (A. M. Z. vol. li. p. 238), but apparently never performed.

��1 The second Sonata in an English edition Is in D minor. Fetis gives 3 Trios for PF. Violin, and Cello, as Op. 33, but It would appear to be a misprint for 23.

2 The number of this Concerto is very doubtful. It Is given as No. 4 in A. M. Z. vol. Ix. Intell. Blatt. x., and this number has been adopted, but Breitkopf & H/irtel call it No. 1 (cp. Op. 20) In their Catalogue, and Fells describes it as No. 6.

3 This Duet seems to have been brought out at Salomon's Concert on May 21, 1806. It could also be played on two FF.s, and was ar- ranged for 4 hands on one FF. by the author. The 3 Sonatas for FF. and Violin or Flute of Op. 34, were published by Clement! with Op. 37, by a misprint, on the title-page.

4 See NON PLOS ULTRA, vol. ii. p. 465 o.

s This Sonata was also published as Op. 5, unless, indeed, this is a misprint. It is possible that Op. 50 included some other Sonatas, as the publisher (Birchall) announces this as ' a 4th Grand Sonata for PF.'

The publisher (Birchall) describes this Concerto as ' by the late J. Woelff, being the last composition of that celebrated author.' It Is, therefore, probably the Concerto played at Salomon's Benefit Con- cert, May 16. 1812.

��7 This work has been variously ascribed to each of the first three named, but Woelfl's share was far the largest, amounting to nearly half the work, viz. Nos. 4, 5, 7, 10, 11, 14, and 15, out of a total of 15. The date usually given is 1801. If Internal evidence is to go for any- thing, It must have been written for Schikaneder's Theatre, and Woelfl's participation in the work makes an earlier date more prob-

s Of these songs, Nos. 2, 3, and 6, were afterwards (1810) printed la The Harmonic Budget.'

This Sonata did not appear under Woelfl's name. It was pub- lished by Lodi about 1797 as op. 18, and an arrangement of It for 4 hands, in which it was attributed to Lodl, was published more than thirty years after by Crelle. The Sonata, however, was almost cer- tainly composed by Woelfl, Lodi's share In It being confined to the Insertion of a few errors, after the fashion of the ignorant schoolboy who has got a good copy of verses done for him. For the whole history of this very curious transaction see Woelfl's Letter to Lodi, which remained unanswered, in the A. M. Z. for 1800 (vol. ii. Intell. Blatt. No. 10), and Fink's article on the matter in the same journal In 1832 (vol. xxxlv. pp. 737 sq.).

10 A good deal of the music In this publication appears to have been published separately either before or afterwards, as e. g. the songs, Fisher's Minuet, the Preludes (?).
