    • found: Grove Music online, Sept. 24, 2004 (Pla. Spanish or Catalan family of oboists and composers. There is some confusion about the precise authorship of their works, as in the sources the first name is rarely specified. Almost all the extant instrumental works found outside Spain are in sources attributed, with spelling variants, to "Sig.r Pla" or "Sig.rs Pla's"; in the latter cases Juan Bautista Pla and José Pla may have been joint composers.)

  • Editorial Notes

    • [For works of definite attribution to Juan Pla, unknown attribution, or possible joint attribution, enter under him; for works of definite attribution to José Pla, enter under Pla, José, 1728-1762. In either case, thematic index numbers used are those from: Dolcet, Josep. "L'obra dels germans Pla, bases per a una catalogaci," in Anuario musical, v. 42 (1987), p. 131-188. E.g. [Trio sonatas, flutes, D. III,15, G major]. An added entry or a reference is made for José as appropriate when entry is under Juan. Manuel Pla's works seem not to be affected by this uncertainty.]
