Note: These arrangements are now believed to have been misattributed to Brahms.
- Fairly likely misattributed, and not too hard to see suggestive though not definite evidence- unless there's a reason not to, I'm removing this from the Brahms category altogether and just keeping it in the Marks cat. The "G.W. Marks" whose Op.151 these were also composed an Op.13 in 1831 and then on, fairly consistently in Op. no., through to Op.176 in the mid-1850s. This is easier to see if one searches for Marks in HMB-online- it's a sort of correlative stream, or something or other, though that could of course only prove publisher assignment of a pseudonymous name to various composers (someone else rather than Brahms pre-humously in 1831/32 for that Op.13, of course) rather than use of a name by one person- though I'm not positive they're all by the same publisher; need to recheck. - Schissel
