Several of the pieces are orchestral arrangements of piano pieces: symphony in C major, Fantasia "The Wanderer", polonaise in F major and the march in E major.  The programme for this concert does not give the name of the orchestrator for the polonaise or the march, although the programme for 10 February 1938 records that 'the March in E major [originally for piano duet] is orchestrated by D.F.T.' The overture "Die Weiberverschwörung" appears to be a reconstruction, perhaps also by Tovey.
