Arranger Victor Rifaut (1798-1838), piano reduction
Language French / German
Translator Karl August von Lichtenstein (1767-1845), German text
Publisher. Info. Mainz: B. Schott's Söhnen, 1831. Plate 3403.
Misc. Notes It seems unclear now which member of the house of Liechtenstein is meant (unless so few of them engaged in work outside the martial that the meaning was clear at the time- an impression one gets, somehow, from Wikipedia articles on the 19th-century Liechtenstein family members; though this may be due to lack of detail/interest in finding out more about individuals. After all, without investigation, one might not know that one- indeed- multiple- members of the family Reuß- across several branches/lines, indeed- composed, for example (including two named Heinrich Reuss.)) (Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1831), p.29, btw.)
