Misc. Notes These file(s) are part of the Werner Icking Music Collection. Except that the Andante is oddly lacking from this (and I expect was dropped in Ebers' original transcription of his symphony for piano solo! ), this is indeed the same symphony (I'd thought otherwise from the different number of movements.) - Schissel

Misc. Comments

To His Prussian Majesty on the occasion of his taking the reins of the throne. If this was dedicated to Frederick William II, it might have been composed for his 1786 coronation? Then again, publication date is approximate, and the King's successor (the IIIrd) followed on merely 11 years after in 1797.

Also, the key is clearly C major (with a brief, but irrelevant*, Adagio introduction to the first movement.)

*Irrelevant to the mode of the symphony - to major/minor - which was claimed to be C minor over at DKB, I suspect, and here too... - not to the symphony and its quality :) - Schissel
