This page is to discuss compositions by Kelar-Bela called "Lustspiel Ouvertuere" (Comedy Overture) and including "Ungarische Lustspiel Ouvertuere" (Hungarian Comedy Overture).
Christofer Nöring's published manuscripts all bear the title "Lustspiel-Ouvertuere, Opus 73". Therefore the other work, heard played by the 38er Voigt organ, is possibly "Ungarishe Lustspiel-Ouvertuere, Opus 108".

Dear Robbie, After some research I found:
The Hungarian composer Keler Bela, (with original hungarian accents:
Kéler Béla) was born in 1820.II.13 in Bártfa (Nord
Hungary, today Slowakia)
His ouverture compositions, from the original catalogue of his publisher, C.F.W. Siegel, Leipzig:
Op. 73 Lustspiel-Ouverture (Es dur) [Comedy
Overture, E-flat major)
These are separate pieces. These original printed scores are preserved in the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Music. I don't know about manuscripts of Kéler Béla, that needs more research.
Best wishes, üdvözlettel, e-musically,
Janos is a musicologist and a professional piano restaurateur at the Institute of Musical Sciences of the Hungarian Academy of Science, Budapest, Hungary. He kindly provied the incipits below which are photocopies of the first edition of the piano 2-hands musical scores published by C.F.W. Siegel's Musikalienhandlung, Leipzig.
