Misc. Comments

A symphony in D major by Schuster was published in "The Symphony in Dresden : ten symphonies" (Garland Publishing, 1984). - hrm. Even if it was just a facsimile reproduction of the manuscript, that might be a problem, if it was this Schuster symphony/sinfonia. (He did write other works of this title, in other keys, and perhaps in this one also. Will have to see if I can find out anything else about the work in the Garland publication...)-Schissel (... hrm. depends on certainty of date attributions- or something. Ottenberg seems to have a thematic catalog of Schuster works, and edited the work in the Garland book. He dates it to 1765. I'll try to get to Cornell library and see if it's the same as this...)
