Philipp Fahrbach Snr (a contemporary of the younger Johann Strauss and working in the same place and genre) wrote a few pieces for ocarina. I got this from the secretary of the Johann Strauss Society in the UK:

Quote:
On research I have in fact located a few pieces that Fahrbach Senior wrote for ocarina (amongst over 300 works he wrote for piano and orchestra) . We have the piano edition of Ocarina-Walzer op.330 and there is also an orchestrated version including part for ocarina published by Cranz. We have a piano edition published by Benjamin around 1878 in our archives. A handwritten set exists which is an arrangement by Schrammel for 2 violins and guitar, and a handwritten set of parts for Ocarina of the same waltz, and two other items Herzdame-Polka and Voglsang-Polka, undated also exist.
Also existing is Kaisermarsch, handwritten for ocarina - undated, with text it seems by Franz Schubert, and another piece called Ocarina-Schule (handscript) again undated.


Seems they're in a library in Vienna:

Anyone nearby want to go look?

Very interesting. I'll see if I know anyone in Vienna.




EDIT: I have found a contact in Vienna and sent them on this quest - I hope that they succeed...

I have the piano score of Philipp Fahrbach Senior's Ocarina-Walzer op. 330. But it seems it is not a composition for ocarina at all. It is notated only for the piano. I assumed at first it is just an accompaniment and that the ocarina part has been lost, but upon closer inspection, this "accompaniment" seems quite complete to pass as a whole composition (although, not a particularly nice one). I cannot tell for certain whether I have the complete composition, or just the piano accompaniment, but I would bet on the former.


In case I am wrong, I have sent my contact in Vienna back to the library to look up the orchestral version. I hope that that version actually contains the ocarina part, so I can combine that melody with the piano accompaniment (in case it is really just accompaniment). However, it may very well be possible that there is no ocarina in this piece at all, in any version, and that the arrangement for orchestra contains only string parts. This would make the title of this piece a bit misleading...


Here is the first page of it, so judge for yourself.

My guess was that the ocarina version may only have existed in manuscript (since there probably weren't enough good ocarina players to make a market for it), and if the manuscript can't be found it would have to be reverse-engineered from the published piano arrangement.

Meanwhile, this looks interesting:

Well, I could reconstruct it from the piano score, however, it will probably be somewhat quite different from the original.

Time to find someone to visit Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in München, Germany, as that seems to be the only library to have a copy of that publication you linked.

Those waltzes got around.

Here's a wind band arrangement, in a library in Denmark:
