HMB claims first publication in 1938. Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1938), p.113. (Piano reduction.) Are they mistaken? Perhaps these scores were lost in the war? (They may also have never been produced. Do we know for sure, though?) - Indeed, Universal's own sample-pages from their score (see link above) has: copyright 1938, copyright of edition with English translation 1956. - ELS
