Sibley gives 1910s (Voyager catalog gives 1910s) - there's no date on score and no reason to put just "1910" without a "n.d." Especially since they are quite mistaken and it wasn't composed until 1921, according to the notes for one of the two recordings that's been made of the work (into which more effort, I expect, has been put into finding a date...) - Schissel

A minor according to the description of one recording (it's had two). Also according to the "usual rules" since the first movement- and first fast movement- is clearly in A minor.

2nd of Simonsen's 4? symphonies- the 3rd "Roma" was composed in 1923 and published (apparently also without copyright data) by Hansen; the 4th (Danmark) of 1925, ("Symphoni i 3 Satser") may have remained in manuscript. The 1st seems also to have a nickname (Zion).

Published by someone 1929 or earlier (either Borups, or Raabe & Plothow, or, well, someone. Or both, perhaps...) (the former's name pasted over the former, according to one source)
