Misc. Comments

  • Recorded by Sterling and BIS (YouTube). Composition dates from the BIS booklet notes.
  • This is not actually the first symphony by Olsen, but the first and only one to be completed. In 1873 he worked on a Symphony in E minor (unfinished).
    • It would of course be nice to have the 1883(/87?) Gutmann full score too - ELS
