Notes

  1. Anonymous: Radiorubriek in De Nieuwe Gids of 21 November 1949, p.4. Only place and performer can be found in CeBeDeM - lijst werken: Œuvres de Victor Legley, p.1. Curiously, the work was already broadcast again on 5 December of that same year (see a.o. Anonymous: La Radio in La Libre Belgique of 5 December 1949, p.6 and Anonymous: Radiorubriek in De Nieuwe Gids of 5 December 1949, p.4). Possibly, on 21 November it was decided at the last moment to postpone the performance of the sonata until 5 December.
