Misc. Comments

In all, 5 symphonies (G minor, D major, C major, E major, A major - in 1 movement; the composer mentioned in a letter a sixth which has not survived) though the E major was basically lost between 1810 or so and 1979 (but recorded a few times since. Still, the complete symphonies boxes don't seem to have the 5th symphony...)

According to an A-R Editions edition of symphony no.1, performed several times in 1809.

A piano reduction of symphony 2 by Paul Vidal was published in 1922.
