Misc. Comments

A performance of the symphony is described by Fétis père in the Revue et Gazette Musicale of January 1849, p.29. Fétis himself gave the premiere in Brussels (if perhaps at an earlier date? unclear) according to Musikalisches conversations-lexikon, volume 8, p.425.

Metronome mark in the first movement of the uploaded score has a number but not a readable indicator (quaver, crotchet, minim...). Guessing crotchet/quarter note?
