Misc. Comments

Bloch ended up composing several symphonies (some with title - "America", "Israel" - some without - Symphony in E-flat major, Symphony for Trombone and Orchestra, Sinfonia Breve - at least 6 ?)

It seems of all of them, this is the 2nd, as a first dating from around 1897 remains in manuscript. The last, after the E-flat symphony, was left incomplete (it seems?...)
