Misc. Comments

D major or D minor? Introduction to first movement, brief, is in D major, but main material of first movement is in D minor. In exactly parallel cases (Mendelssohn 5th symphony?) there's some disagreement (D major/minor I mean)... though here the first movement ends on a dissonance.

Front cover gives composer's address but it does look like a subtitle ("Lansdowne").
