Publisher. Info. Vienna: Universal Edition, n.d.[1928]. Plate 8995.
Misc. Notes Date 1927 from HMB: "8. Sinfonie für Gross. Orch. ... Part. (1927)..." According to a copy of the first(?) edition at Northwestern University Library, plate should be 8907 (additionally: "W.Ph.V.168 "Philharmonia" Partiturensammlung", 268 pp. in full, on their copy. See NUCat Record for Myaskovsky Symphony 8 Full Score. May apply to a slightly different (marginally earlier, given the 8907 plate?) but approximately contemporary edition (hence "Philharmonia Partiturensammlung") of course...)

Navigation etc.

However, going with 1928 date in P template per attempt to standardize. Interestingly, Tassie ("Nikolay Myaskovsky: The Conscience of Russian Music", p.364) gives 1929 for publication date- either HMB is wrong (this happens) or Tassie is; happens...

Universal Edition instrumentation claims 2 harps.
