Misc. Comments

NZM 1918 p. 254: "Auf dem um 12. und 13. Oktober stattfindenden Musikfest in Meiningem werden einen Orchesterfantasie von Marie Prinzessin von Sachsen-Meiningen, ein sinfonisches Gedicht für Orchester mit Gesang von Fritz Fleck, ein Streichquartett von Richard Wetz und eine Violinsonate von Robert Kahn zum ersten Male gespielt werden." P.324 (19 Dec. 1918 issue) gives a review of what was perhaps its first Leipzig performance.
