First performance - perhaps 1891 (when the Musical Yearbook of the United States mentions that a symphony by Rudorff was performed or to be performed by the Philharmonic Society of Berlin) or 1892 (17 March 1892 Musikalisches Wochenblatt, p.154, mentions a performance (again, in the past or near future?...) specifically of Rudorff's 2nd symphony in the 4th orchestral concert of the Hofkapelle of Schwerin, conducted by Schmitt.) cpo's notes to the 3rd symphony however give 1898.
