Notes by compiler
The Library of the National Music Conservatory possesses a set of handwritten instrumental parts. There is also a reduction for smaller orchestra, intended to score a film that was presumably never made.
Texts by Revueltas about the works
Roads: slightly tortuous, probably unpaved and never traveled by limousines. Apart from that, they are short enough to not feel discomfort, or cheerful enough to forget about it.
