Raff: Ländler (Country Dance) from Piano Suite in g, opus 162 No.3. Composed in 1870 and first published by Challier (Berlin) in 1871.
Two leaflet versions published by Metzler (London). The first one is the original version in Eb, the second one is a transcription made by Ludwig Bussler (1838-1900, teacher of Bruno Walter).
He only changed the key to E and added some broken chords ... :roll:

Raff: Two more numbers in leaflet edition from his Piano Suite in g, No.2 Volkslied mit Variationen (Folk song with ten variations). So far as I know the Volkslied-Variationen was the most popular move of the Suite, but it based not really on a Folk Song, the folk tune is more likely a "folk-like tune" of Raff's own design.
And No. 4 Mährchen (Fairy tale), a sort of modified Rondo. (Metzler-Edition, 600 dpi)

Raff: Two Leaflet Editions from his Piano-Suite No.6 in G, opus 163, No.4 Menuetto and No.5 Rhapsodie.
The Suite was first published by Robert Seitz (Leipzig) in 1871, in the second edition the Rhapsodie was omitted. In 1874 Raff arranged the Rhapsodie for orchestra and published it with opus number 163b (Robert Seitz Edition 1874). The Rhapsodie for Orchestra was titled Abends Rhapsodie (~At evening Rhapsodie). The editor Patey & Willis (London) changed the title to Sunset Rhapsodie - for marketing reasons I guess. Note the misspelled German title: A bends.
