Septet No.1, Op.74 (Hummel, Johann Nepomuk)
Scores and Parts
Paris: Richault, n.d. Plate R. 554.
From the uploader's library. The parts for this score and only the parts have been identified by their former owner: M.Engel-Metgé - possibly Madeleine Engel-Metgé (1857-1936) - and were studied with great care by the soloists to judge from the copious and well-thought-out annotations in blue pencil (except for the Cello). The names of the Cello and Oboe players are black pencilled on the Horn part as Naigely (Cello) and Vogt (Oboe). The piano part has not been similarly treated apart from a clunky page turn preparation on p.15. The missing oboe part has been anonymously copied in blue ink and is found below. The color scans have been left untouched for the sake of authenticity.
Leipzig: C.F. Peters, No.1304, n.d. Plate 5601.

The version with 2 celli instead of cello/double bass is from Franz Liszt's edition, but was not in Hummel's original. Grove doesn't list it as an alternative, although Grove does list a version for piano quintet, i.e. violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano.
