Concert of 26 May 1930

Furtwängler's programme was fairly conventional, although it did include a performance of Max Reger's Mozart Variations, a work he was familiar with at the time.

The list of musicians on page 10 includes a number of names from outside the orchestra, in fact extra musicians hired for the tour.

It is worth noting that Maria Ivogün (pictured below) was accompanied by the eminent teacher and musician Rudolf Volkmann, the same person who had trained the 500 choir members for the Deutsches Requiem the previous year.

One last detail: the hotel "Zum schwarzen Bären", where the audience was welcomed "informally" after the concert, still exists. This is where Furtwängler stayed.
