Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Impossible to tell date this was issued without information on publisher, as we don't know that this was the first publisher to issue the score (it was first issued by 1929, but perhaps by Raabe & Plothow?) As noted @ WorldCat Borup's label is pasted over another- perhaps Raabe's- imprint.

cpo recording gives 3 movements with titles "Kampf gegen Knechtschaft", "Verheissung" and "Allegro con brio". Seems to be the same piece? Maybe those are the manuscript header labels...

Besides the first two of his 4 symphonies (Zion (1920), Hellas (1921), Roma, Danmark (1925)), also his string quartets and piano concerto are on CD.

Performed 1923 June 11 conducted by Paul Klenau (cond. DKF/DFS?). Published by 1929 (mentioned in an annual report of the LoC that year) though not necessarily first published by Borups Musikforlag (first publisher - who "published" the autograph score - may have been Raabe & Plothow.)
