It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular of all symphonies. The symphony was commissioned by the New York Philharmonic, and premiered on December 16, 1893, at Carnegie Hall conducted by Anton Seidl.

The second movement (Largo) was described by the composer as a “sketch or study for a later work, either a cantata or opera … which will be based upon Longfellow’s Hiawatha”
