A review of the Dresden premiere (?? early performance? a performance around the same time or slightly later also occurred in Würzburg) appears in the December 1932 NZM, p.1101 (earlier it is mentioned that the orchestra would be the Staatskapelle, the premiere part of a series of concerts that would also feature the premiere of Hans Gál's violin concerto- which was indeed premiered February 1933 by those forces). Eulenburg publication reviewed 1932 NZM, p.989-990.
