6. There is a manuscript found among the Sautschecks' Papers that contains all music also found in the so-called Weiss-Moscow Ms.

There are some notable differences in our document, in that many pieces are firmly attributed to Belogradsky, who is believed elsewhere to be the compiler of this group of pieces. Also, this document is written in a way that aids in legibility in comparison with the Moscow document, using flag values that are 2x greater.

As a preview you may peruse this Andante: The ENTIRE Manuscript will follow soon.

1. "Sonata-36" [in the Abenprüfungen numbering] by Konradin Aemilius Sautscheck. A small homage to Franz Schubert, it is based on the main theme of the "Rosamunde" Quartett.
