Misc. Comments

was it first performed in 1898? a 1913 magazine claims "Professor Karl Panzner conducted the first performance of Wilhelm Berger's first symphony" (Musical times and singing-class circular, May 1 1913, page 339. Dusseldorf. Panzner (1866–1923) also premiered Ewald Straesser's 5th symphony in G.) First British performance however was in 1901 October. (Musical Times, December 1 1901, page 823.)

(Hrm, nice fughetta, or hint of one, to open the finale...)
