Misc. Notes 1873 1st version; includes revisions made in 1874.
Bruckner completed the Third Symphony on 31 December 1873 and had two copy scores made: (a) the Wagner dedication score and (b) Mus.Hs. 6033 in the Austrian National Library. The 1873 version was rehearsed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in June or July 1874, but not accepted for performance. The 1873 version was lost in Leipzig during World War II. Mus.Hs. 6033 contains the 1874 version and includes revisions made in 1874. See Griegel.

Misc. Notes Bruckner revised the symphony again from January through April 1877. Based on dates in the score, we know that Bruckner revised the Finale during this time; he may or may not have revised the other movements also. Bruckner revised the Adagio in October 1877, then revised the Scherzo in January 1878, which included the addition of a 41-bar coda, and this represents the final form of the autograph manuscript, now Mus.Hs.19475 in the Austrian National Library, which is one source for the score published in 1878.

Copyright
Misc. Notes Double bass may replace cello. Schmalnauer's arrangement is PD-US due to the failure to register the work with the U.S. Copyright Office and failure to file an NIE. Score bears a "scarecrow" copyright notice of 1953.

In the USA this work is most likely in the public domain because it was published without a compliant copyright notice, no renewal was found after a thorough search of the Catalog of Copyright Entries, or it was either ineligible for "restoration" under GATT/TRIPs and/or no record of an NIE filing was found in the online records of the US Copyright Office.
