Misc. Comments

First performance - perhaps 1891 (when the Musical Yearbook of the United States mentions that a symphony by Rudorff was performed or to be performed by the Philharmonic Society of Berlin) or 1892 (17 March 1892 Musikalisches Wochenblatt, p.154, mentions a performance (again, in the past or near future?...) specifically of Rudorff's 2nd symphony in the 4th orchestral concert of the Hofkapelle of Schwerin, conducted by Schmitt.)
