... Hrm. Does Gulinskaja or anyone else mention when this symphony was premiered?
(answering myself sort of: "this last-named young composer's [Myaskovsky] third symphony has been brought forward by Siloti, and has been received with profound respect if not exactly with enthusiasm." - from M. Montagu-Nathan's "Music in Russia" column, February 1 1917 Musical Times, page 71 (Myaskovsky's 2nd piano sonata had just been mentioned. So, premiered by 1917. Seem to recall a mention of a performance closer to 1915, as Ikonnikov, I think, mentions Myaskovsky hearing of a performance while he was still on the war front (this relating to the genesis of either symphony 4 or 5, I think.))
