Following the success of Symphony No.2 in 1955, Hovhaness' music was published by Peters Edition for almost two decades. They administer over 200 works, the bulk of his published output. They ceased publishing Hovhaness in 1972 (except for 1982's Symphony No.50). Opus numbers often conflict wildly with actual chronology since many works were published years after their composition.
