Misc. Comments

From preface: "The finale was thought to be lost until in 1983 the current author discovered a substantial short score of 58 measures of an Allegro in D Major which could be identified as a fragment of the finale." Schumann also tried to compose a finale to this symphony - "In 1988 a sketch of an orchestral movement in D Major (121 bars) was found among Schumann’s manuscript of his Mass, Op. 147 - a sketch which undoubtedly refers to Burgmüller’s fragment of the finale."

Hrm. Whatever the date of the Perabo arrangement, one does see that in December 1874 the Burgmüller symphony (in the state in which it's usually performed now), Gernsheim's piano concerto (Perabo, pianist), and works by Beethoven and Mendelssohn shared a concert in Boston, at least according to Dwight's Journal of Music for Jan. 9 1875.
