This work was premiered in Munich on November 28, 1883, Hermann Levi conducting. Lahee's Annals of Music in America and Mueller's compendium of the repertoire of 27 major U.S. orchestras make no mention of a U.S. performance. Theodore Thomas conducted the world premiere of Richard Strauss's second symphony with the Philharmonic-Society of New York on December 13, 1884, and this performance is generally acknowledged as the first performance of Strauss in America. Thomas does not appear to have performed the Concertouverture, nor is it clear how he obtained a copy, though it is probable that Strauss gave him the manuscript during one of Thomas's trips to Europe, either in the summer of 1883 or 1884. The opus number was later withdrawn and given to the Lieder aus Letzte Blätter.

Richard Strauss was a composer, musician, and conductor who emerged as the most prestigious German composer of his day. Born in Munich, the son of a noted musician, he received a thorough education in music from his father. A child prodigy, he learned to play several instruments in his youth, and composed his first song at the age of six. During his long and productive life, he composed in many forms, but is probably best known for tone-poems and opera. He was also a respected musician, and a conductor renowned throughout Europe and North and South America.
