odd, since at least according to U Colorado at Boulder Pâque's opus 49 is an impromptu for piano from 1912, I wonder if something is up. Strangeness... but this score has complete identification... maybe one or the other score suffers from an opus no. typo (as happens). If Pâque's opus numbers are fairly consistent in association with time (want of better expression), the late opus 40s are in the 1890s and the late opus 60s (sonatas 1 and 2 published, like the Impromptu in question, by Simrock, in 1912) making me think "typo" and that yes, this is opus 49 and not, pace French Wikipedia, the Simrock-published Impromptu pub.1912. (Wikipedia has: Suite de deux pièces (Romance et Allegro Scherzando) pour alto et piano, op. 24 (1892); publié comme "op. 49". However, again, other works in the vicinity of opus 49 were also published in the 1890s, while other works published in 1912 were in the late opus 60s.)
- However, Op.48 was published by Simrock in 1912. Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1912), p.127. And opus number choronological order is not always "a thing". Also again: some composers like to create opus chronological order by date of -composition- when they can, it seems... Anyhow...
