Notes & Reviews:

CPO concludes the original symphonic editions this month with the Gouvy Edition. Gouvy was born in 1819 in Goffontaine (today's Scheidt-Schafbrücke), just outside Saarbrücken. When he died in 1898, he was regarded as a Frenchman in Germany and as a German in France. No other foreign composer's works were performed as frequently in the 1850s in Leipzig as Gouvy's.
