  • NYT source of 1893 US Premiere date. (Sunday March 5, 1893 newspaper.) See also NYPO archives. (A search also reveals the program notes, intriguingly nearby those of a performance of Strong’s Sintram Symphony.) Does the NYPO have the full score or parts digitized?

Instrumentation from the listing in the Fleisher Collection. Review of first Berlin performance (under Bülow) given here, but may have been performed elsewhere earlier.
