Mss Sources Dresden Abschrift Full Scores (partially autograph)
Information from Abschrift at Ossietzky Library, Hamburg
Library of Congress Copy
1860s Dresden Abschrift
Abschrift score, short score, (now) incomplete parts used for an 1811 performance in Weimar (however, RISM is probably wrong about it being Genast Jr., if they mean Eduard Genast, who did not debut in Weimar until 1814. See Genast family biography at Raff.org (Eduard's daughter Doris Genast later married Joachim Raff...) Probably Eduard's father Anton Genast performed in Achille instead?)
