Arranger Possibly Carel Emanuel Fodor (1754 or 1759-1799)
Publisher. Info. Paris: Boyer et Mme Menu, n.d.(ca.1785-93?).
Misc. Notes As with the Sieber arrangement of symphony in G now called no.47, missing 3rd movement ("ohne [III]", as Hoboken notes on page 127.) Rue de Richelieu is listed as one of two addresses, suggesting (on the Boyer page) that 1785-93 might be an approximate date of publication of this arrangement. (Rue du Roule is still listed, as Mme le Menu's address.) As to the arranger, he is named (as C. Fodor) on several other Boyer arrangements for this ensemble of Haydn symphonies. (Carelus Antonius Fodor was a youth at the time, born 1768. Carel/Carolus Emmanuel Fodor was a little older (and also went by C. Fodor) and seems more likely.)
