Misc. Comments

Recorded on Bayer Records BR 100 160 CD (1993, released 1995.)

While Sibley and the title page refer to the work as Columbus, a seascape in the form of a symphony (translating from the German), several sources refer to this work as his fourth symphony (whether Abert later referred to it so or it is so accounted posthumously in the canon, such as it is, of his works, I do not know.)
