Not that it is so important, but WIkipedia mentions the B minor symphony as being No. 6. Are there actually only twxo (or three) numbered symphonies out of the mentioned eight?

I was aware of this but I decided to follow the information given by the broadcaster, Deutschlandradio Kultur. I will upload an interval talk about the composer and her work shortly. It's in German but perhaps some of you are interested and able to follow.

EDIT: It's available for download now. I have added the link to my original post of the symphony.
Thank you! They do refer to the "Fourth Symphony in B minor". So does the program of the concert. This uncertainty is a bit intriguing, since Emilie Mayer's symphonies were actually performed in those years and apparently were numbered. It is true that symphonic cycles by other composers (e.g. Dvořák) experienced quite some change of numbering over the years.
