American Symphony notes claim that Mahler conducted this symphony in New York in 1911. This has been confirmed from newspaper reviews of the time.

Arrangement listed as "just published" in a Novello ad in the April 1, 1888 Musical Times, page 200. The full score, one suspects, postdated the arrangement.

Was given its US premiere soon after its premiere, by the NY Symphony, January 27 1888 conducted by Walter Damrosch. According to the NY Philharmonic Archives this was also performed conducted by Mahler February 14 and 17 1911.

Possibly published in 1887 (Sir Thomas Beecham musical inventory (p.67) (Beecham Q318A), gives "[1887]... Publication date from CPM.)
