The composer Paul Kreutzer is completely obscure; we have been unable to locate mention of him in any of the standard reference works. It is possible that the present work was added to the present collection in the mistaken belief that it was, in fact, by Rodolphe Kreutzer, who had also published some "Pot-Pourris" for the same combination of instruments.
