The B. numbers are for Jarmil Burghauser, who catalogued all of Dvořák’s works, chronologically. Many of Dvořák’s works also have S. numbers, for Otakar Šourek, who catalogued most of Dvorak’s works chronologically. B. and S. numbers do not coincide. Many of Dvorak’s works also have Opus numbers, but beware; some works have had as many as four different Opus numbers.
