Publication History

The original printing of the piano-vocal score (lacking the dialogue between numbers) was in St. Petersburg by Büttner, 1859; the bilingual version based on the same engraving was issued (with the dialogue added) from Leipzig by Rahter, [1879]. The overture was published in full score, the orchestration of which evidently owes much to Balakirev.
