Noting down here; it may not be worth inclusion in article. His death was memorialized in Erfurt with a concert containing his quartet in F minor and some lieder (page 246, Jg. 103 Neue Zeitschrift für Musik.) Then - Page 360 of the same issue notes a performance of the symphony no. 2 in Mannheim - p. 461, the second quartet, page 595 symphony number 3 of the same volume of this volume of the Zeitschrift. (Not sure if I looked further that day; this was during some research at the library, and I need to return to same.) Not surprisingly, some performance history after demise even for composers who are not household names. The 103 Jg. is a yearly expanse (not January-December, I think, I'll have to check, but still a years' worth of issues) with Jg. 87 having been released in 1920 and Jg 110 released in 1943. Again, probably partial list so far here. Schissel | Sound the Note! 16:33, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Any chance you have citations for those? We'd love to add sourced material. ~Kylu (u|t) 08:54, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This is a well-written article, it just needs more citations in the Biography, Style, and Reception sections (although Style is of least importance) before it can be passed. The symphonies he is best known for should also be named in the lead. So, for now this will be on hold. --~ Joe Jklin (T C) 02:38, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Here's a list that might help with improvements --~ Joe Jklin (T C) 02:49, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

    a Pass/Fail:
Going to try to find an audio clip, somewhere, and perhaps some links to currently available works without looking like I'm spamming. Hm. ~Kylu (u|t) 02:20, 8 September 2007 (UTC)\
GA Failed. Not enough improvement were made in the seven days in order to pass it. This article still needs more reliable citations and could use a good image or two. You can see my comments above for further improvements~ Joe Jklin (T C) 03:21, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Composer project review[edit]

I've reviewed this article as part of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Composers review of its B-class articles. This article is fairly high quality; it requires a few things to achieve an A rating; and a few (different) things, noted in the GA review above, to merit GA consideration. My detailed review is on the comments page; questions or comments can be left here or on my talk page. Magic♪piano 21:14, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
