hrm- not published until 1928?? (full score, acc. to Worldcat- 1929 for reduction) I wonder if it was revised between 1911 and 1928... (full score then republished in selected works in the 1950s, have seen that printing)
Premiered in Moscow in June 1912 under the baton of Konstantin Saradjev.
However, premiere date given in Gulinskaia* is June 28, 1913, Pavlovsk, Aslanov conducting (photograph of program from this concert is duplicated in an insert before page 17.)
It's possible--the 1st Symphony was revised according to http://www.myaskovsky.ru/?id=4&id1=3&id2=3&sf=0&so=0 in 1921. --BachFan 19:18, 30 September 2015 (EDT)
- Yes, and several other works of his were revised even later still; it was something of a thing of his. Possible, yes, certainly- but not definite. If anyone has any evidence one way the other, my ears are open... - ES
(In regards the premiere, the notes to the Svetlanov recording as re-issued on Alto claim that it did not take place until April 1915 in St. Petersburg, Court Orchestra conducted by Hugo Warlich. Unless the earlier performances described above were announced but cancelled, though- or something else is amiss - this seems to be a mistake, albeit a misapprehension the composer was under too - as the source for the information seems to be letters he received from friends while fighting in WWI.)
