The name on the first page of the manuscript full score is "Thurner (Théod aîné)." A comparison of the work list found at
This concerto would appear to be mentioned at the end of the biography of Thurner published in :
A l'occasion de sa réception solennelle à l'Academie de Marseille, il fit exécuter par un de ses élèves favoris son Troisème Concerto, pièce remarquable à tous égards.
- I was mistaken in my translation of Aîné, as I recall, it does mean older or younger -brother-, I think, not senior or junior as in father or son... - which still doesn't solve the problem quite exactly :) it just means maybe he had a younger brother who composed (and maybe not). - Schissel (or rather, that someone could be both aîné (elder brother) and le jeune (the younger- son, as in, jr.) - genealogically vertically- I think. Maybe. Hrm. ...Erm.)
(Formerly owned by Alfred Cortot (along, RISM seems to hint, with over 150 other items). I wonder if he performed or even premiered it?)
As an amusing sideline, in the Dictionary of Famous Alsatian Men, sorry, People, referred to above, the article establishes that Th. Thurner : "Très modeste, Thurner ne recherchait pas les hommes" then goes on to clarify the point by stressing his complete indifference of honors (="honneurs", not "hommes" !!). - Jurabe
