Untitled[edit]

There are now two releases of Voříšek's piano music and chamber works - Radoslav Kvapil on Supraphon playing his opus 1 through opus 20 piano works on three CDs, for example and another release with not just the violin sonata but several other works as well- so it is not at all strictly true that the symphony, the violin sonata and the Mass (and the piano sonata!) are among the few works of his recorded. And while it would not be NPOV to say that more recordings are in some sense deserved, that's in part because there are better, more only-the-facts (but still reader-friendly and jargon-free, like Tovey's notes on other pieces known and unknown) ways to say much the same. So I believe the sentence as written is not really accurate enough? Schissel | Sound the Note! 17:03, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Burial[edit]

Voříšek died in 1825, Beethoven in 1827, and Schubert in 1828. So Voříšek wasn't buried in the cemetery where the other two 'lay at rest' which is what the sentence appeared to be saying. In fact, the remains of both Beethoven and Schubert were later moved to the Zentralfriedhof. Perhaps this is what the sentence intended - that they lay there at rest before they were moved? Anyway, the amendement is now both clear and correct. If anyone else feels like adding that B and S are now buried elsewhere, let them add it, but the article is about Voříšek Ioan_Dyfrig (talk) 17:32, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Dating of symphony in D[edit]

According to this preface - http://www.musikmph.de/musical_scores/vorworte/904.html - the symphony dates from 1822-3, not 1821? Schissel | Sound the Note! 13:17, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

The liner notes of an old Czech recording of the work, made in 1984, gives the year of composition as 1823. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.77.105.1 (talk) 20:58, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
