A Frenchman writing a Hungarian Rhapsody? Well......why not! :D He did manage to capture a few Hungarian elements.

Thanks, Alfred.

Thanks for your efforts Alfor. A year ago (almost to the day) I uploaded this BNF scan in a batch of Chandelier pieces. I believe I converted all the AC pieces they had posted at that time.

Yes. I found out :idea: ! So my sole credit is that I deleted blank pages and did some cutting...

Could fit as well the Salon Music or "More than 2 hands (but NOT 4) on any number of pianos", but since Ambroise Thomas the composer of the theme is French, I put it here.

Albert Alain (1880-1971) who besides being a composer was also an amateur organ builder. He is the father of famous organist Marie-Claire Alain (whom I've heard in person several times) and composer Jehan Alain (whose famous piece "Litanies" we all know & love--and has written some Satie-like piano music).

Here we have Albert with some charming salon pieces. It is interesting to see a Frenchman's take on Spanish music in his Espagnolerie.

Very nice, Alfred.
