The cleanup tag[edit]

Hello Eusebeus, could you please specify what needs to be cleaned up? I could give it a try. I'd rather not have this article bear a scarlet letter for the long term. Thanks, Opus33 (talk) 16:12, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Date of premiere[edit]

"The exact date of the symphony is not known, other than the year. However, the symphony must have been premiered no earlier than May (since that is when Stamitz and Dietzl arrived) and before September 13, 1765. The latter date is known since the symphony includes a flute part, and the flautist (Franz Siegl) was dismissed on this date for having carelessly started a fire while shooting birds;[6] it was only the following year that Haydn was able to persuade his patron to reinstate Siegl." This quote is word for word the same as the description used in the video below. I'm just wondering whether the speaker in the video found it from Wikipedia, or if a Wikipedian has found this and decided to quote it verbatim without referencing?

If someone finds the answer, I would appreciate it if I could be notified on my own talk page, as I likely won't find it here. --Sauronjim (talk) 15:10, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
