I recently bought a few books from the library of the Czech music critic Jaroslav Egon Salaba-Vojan (1872-1944). One of the books contained an untitled handwritten composition. Due to the fact that there were other handwritten compositions clearly marked as copies from other composers, this special work seems to be an original composition by Salaba-Vojan himself. But I am uncertain about this and so would like to ask:

1) Does anyone know this work (the opening bars)? Salaba-Vojan was Czech and founder of the Bohemian Arts Club in the USA, so if the work was composed by someone else he/she might be Czech/Bohemian.

2) For what kind of instruments do you think it is scored? Looks like violin+piano, but the glissando at the end of the section from piano to violin looks unusual to me.

Here is a photo of the first bars:

On my website one can find the complete score and a sound realisation (at the very end of the page):

Every help is very much appreciated!

It looks to me like a single piano score. All of these notes can be played by two hands - he adds the third staff (g-clef one octave up) for clarity. Right hand = upper staff, left hand = bottom two staves.
