Extra Information This work was never completed as a 4-movement symphony. The two movements that were composed in some form or another were completed and orchestrated by Glazunov. The second movement (Scherzo) is an orchestration of a number that Borodin had composed for the collective set of pieces known as "Les Vendredis" (published in book 2.)

Navigation etc.

Scherzo, like its source in Les vendredis, is in quintuple time (though 5/8 here rather than 5/4.)

Wikipedia gives publication in 1888. The full score helpfully gives plate #s as 126-128, which suggests that perhaps the parts have plate 127?
