Misc. Comments

Performance mentioned in a 1921 issue of Le Ménéstrel (in a report from Stockholm)? Programmatic titles for movements from Frederick Key Smith's Nordic Art Music: From the Middle Ages to the Third Millennium.

(Despite F major key-signature in last pages of work, concluding two page Andante tranquillo returns to F minor, including final chords. A representative quote - this from Schwann but reflective of other sources - "it is the work that made Peterson-Berger's reputation as a symphonist.")
