This edition is based on the text of the symphony published in Vol. 2 of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Collected Works (Muzyka Publishers, Moscow, 1982). When preparing the score, the following sources were also used: author’s manuscript of the score kept in the Russian State Archives of Literature and Art, rec. gr. 653, inv. 1, f. 2266; manuscript copy of the score reviewed and corrected by the composer in 1972 kept in the Library of the Sheet Music Centre at the Moscow Union of Composers, No. 6222; author’s manuscript of the symphony piano score (Russian State Archives of Literature and Art, rec. gr. 2048, inv. 1, f. 3); lifetime editions of the 1932 score (Muzsektor Gosizdata Publishers, Moscow) and the 1975 score (Sovetsky Kompozitor Publishers, Moscow). Inaccuracies and mistakes in previous publications have been corrected without special comments. Any necessary editing additions are given in square brackets. Shostakovich used five-string double-basses in the symphony (see, for example, bars 486, 487, 694, 877, 883, and 887), without stipulating this fact in the list of instruments.

Piccolo, 2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 B flat Clarinets, 2 Bassoons, 4 Horns, 2 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Tuba, Timpani, Triangle, Side Drum, Cymbals, Bass Drum, Gong, Glockenspiel, Xylophone, S.A.T.B. chorus, Strings. Five-string double-basses required in the symphony; their use is not stipulated in the list of instruments.

This ambitious series by DSCH, the exclusive publisher of the works of Dmitri Shostakovich, when complete, will run to 150 volumes.

Based on authentic manuscripts, accompanied by commentaries in Russian and in English, each volume contains new engravings, articles relating to the history of the compositions, facsimile pages of Shostakovich's manuscripts, outlines, and rough drafts.

Divided into 15 different "series" or genres, the edition will include nearly all the original works of the composer, and his instrumentation of music by Domenico Scarlatti, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Johann Strauss, Youmans, Braga, Tishchenko, and others.

25% of the New Collected Works will be made up of previously unpublished material: over 80 of his works are being published here for the first time. Many of these previously unknown works could not be published or performed during the composer's lifetime for ideological reasons.

The fifteen "series" within the edition comprise:
I: Symphonies (vols 1-30)
II: Orchestra Compositions (vols 31-37)
III: Instrumental Concertos (vols 38-49)
IV: Compositions for the Stage (vols 50-67)
