This might seem a ridiculously obscure question, but here goes...

The Miserly Knight and Francesca Da Rimini were consciously created as a double bill, premiered together.

But does anyone have any source that indicates which one was performed first? Which way round did Rachmaninov want them? I don't know if the opus numbers are meant to tell this.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!
