Misc. Comments

Perhaps published 1886 or 1887? (His Opp.25-27 were published in 1886, according to HMB (Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1886), p.127) - Op.25 "Ostern" by Hoffarth, Op. 26 "Pfingsten" concerto and "Melodie" for organ by Robolsky.

Adagio of 2nd movement has heading "Schaut mit den Augen des Geistes hinan! In Euch lebe die bildende Kraft, die das Schönste, das Höchste, hinauf über die Sterne das Leben trägt. (Goethe.)"

"Allgemeiner Führer durch die Musik-Litteratur", (ca.?) 1888 mentions both this and Op.30 (organ symphony no.1 in C) (as published by Hoffarth, not Robolsky!)

HMB does have "Symphonisches Tonstück (Gretchen im Dom)" Op.32 by Fischer published by Robolsky in 1889, however, and his Op.31 suite (HMBref 1888, p.523). (Also op.29, HMBref 1887/424.)
