H. Berdier question
Does anyone happen to know any history or biographical information about a H. Berdier? My son will be performing Berdier's Humoresque and I can not find an original copy of the music for the judges nor any info on the man himself via Google or other search engines. I was told that he was from Russia.
Thanks for any help.
Re: H. Berdier question
Could this be Dvorak's Humoresque arranged by Jean Francois Verdier? "V" is transliterated into Russian with "B" and sometimes things get confused when a name is transliterated back out of Cyrillic. The "H." is a problem - there isn't an "h" sound in Russian.

Let's hope it's actually by Dvorak - there's lots of info on him.
P.S. The "H" may not be such a problem, after all: the Russian transliterating "J. Verdier" into Cyrillic would have written the "J." with the letter for the French "j" sound, or ж, which would then be transliterated back by an English-speaker as "ZH" . And then the "z" part got dropped.
