The matter has been made the subject of much discussion. Ballet-Movement and Entr'acte from " Rosamunde." Franz Peter Schubert.
A terribly garbled version, arranged by the notorious Castil-Blaze, with interpolations from the music of Oberoti, was brought out at the Academie de Musique in Paris on April 6, 1831. After this startling exordium the united wind instruments expose a commanding theme in full harmony, a theme taken from a passage of Adolar's in the first finale of the opera. We sell it at the price of the ordinary furniture of to-day. The gaps in the score have been filled out (all but the missing third movement) by Alexandre Guilmant, of Paris, this filling-out being done on the organ, as was the custom in Handel's day.
Some of the greatest geniuses have not thought it beneath them to fill out Handel's " accompaniments," and have devoted much time and study to the task ; among them may be mentioned Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Robert Franz. WINTER STREET AND TEHPLE PLACE (18) I historical party owes its name to its pertinacious insistence upon the neces- sity of filling out the " accompaniment " on the harpsichord (or pianoforte) or organ, because it is an historical fact that Handel himself filled it out on one or the other of these instruments.

Beethoven's visit to Eisenstadt in September of the same year was probably devoted entirely to bringing out the C major Mass, opus 86 ; so that he had no time to work on the symphonies there.

Concerning the manner in which the " accompaniment " is to be filled out there is a considerable diversity of opinion among experts. The other party, sometimes known as the " artistic " party, lays little stress upon the particular instru- ment, or instruments, on which the filling out is done, — in fact, they, for the most part, advocate giving the organ or harpsichord the go-by, and em- ploying various combinations of orchestral instruments for the filling-out (but not as a matter of life-and-death importance),— but throw nearly the whole weight of their arguments upon the musical style in which the addi- tions are to be written, a matter to which the historical party pay compara- tively little attention. The original melody is repeated between, and after, the two Trios, according to the usual scheme of the scherzo form. The first performance of the C minor symphony was at a concert given by Beethoven at the Theater an der. The con- cert was a memorable one ; every number on the program was then given for the first time in Vienna, and the program included, beside the sym- phony mentioned, the Pastoral sym^horxy \ the pianoforte concerto No. The first movement of the symphony, Allegro con brio in C minor (2-4 time) opens grandly with three G's followed by a long-held Y.-'Az X fortissimo in all the strings and clarinets.

To be sure, its use was usually indicated, by terms such as Organo, Cembalo, or Contitiuo, written opposite the bass staff of the score ; but ;such indications were by no means invariable, and, even in their absence, one can find other signs of the use of such instruments being contemplated by the composer.* Frequent thorough-bass figuring under the bass part is the plainest indication, for the full harmony corresponding to this figuring could only be played on a keyboard instrument ; and the idea that com- posers jotted down thorough-bass figuring for nothing — when they omitted so much more — is not to be entertained.
