Borodin started work on his second symphony soon after the 1869 premiere of his first. He worked on it off and on until 1876, putting it aside for another project - misplacing his orchestral scores of the first and last movements in the process. When a performance was scheduled in 1877, Borodin had to re-orchestrate the two movements from his piano-4 hands score. This new score is a digitally-enhanced, corrected reprint of the one first issued in 1946 by Muzgiz. Editors Clinton Nieweg and Nancy Bradburd have thoroughly researached the source material to produce an extremely authoritative score of this renowned favorite of the Russian master's three symphonies.
