Potsdam, 27 June 1938

The booklet does not list the detailed programmes. However, we will make up for this, at least for the essentials.

First of all, the concert by the BPO and Furtwängler on 27 June at the Konzerthaus:
– Bach: Suite No. 2, with Albert Harzer, solo flute;
– Bach: Concerto for three pianos in D major BWV 1064, with Edwin Fischer, Eduard Erdmann and Furtwängler;
– Mozart : Symphony No. 40.

Edwin Fischer performed the full Six Brandenburg Concertos over three days, on 21, 24 and 26 June, combined with other works, including cantatas sung by Ria Ginster and Helene Fahrni.

The BPO, in a scaled-down formation and under the baton of Hans von Benda, played two 'baroque' concerts, while Karl Landgrebe, 'Kantor' of Sansouci's Friedenkirche (from 1936 to 1957) conducted Mozart's Requiem with local musicians.

Furtwängler and his orchestra returned to Potsdam year after year until the Summer of 1944, except in 1941 when the conductor was unable to perform after a serious accident in February.
