Navigation etc.

A program in the 1891/1892 Musical Yearbook of the United States announcing the Boston Symphony's 1891/92 season describes the upcoming 1/14/1892 concert as containing the Godard performance and has the words "first time" - whether this is a world premiere or a US premiere (or even just a Boston Symphony premiere) is not clarified. Assuming the former?

(More or less the composer's 3rd violin concerto, after "Op.29" in D minor (manuscript, may only exist in violin/piano reduction, digitzed by the French National Library) and the Concerto romantique, Op.35 in A minor.)
