The man without whom we may never have been able to hear it, Professor David Charlton, musicologist and discoverer of the lost 4th Symphony by Etienne Mehul is the author of a rather large thick book containing manuscripts of 3 Mehul Symphonies which until the time of Charlton’s discovery had been lost to obscurity since Mehul’s death in 1817.  The link below will lead you to the chapter in the book specifically about Mehul’s 4th Symphony which the OAE will be playing on Tuesday next week at QEH.  Be warned, it’s fairly high-brow..
