Fascinating event. I can recommend this box set, even though it is not in strict performance order:





That is a fantastic set and quite a patch on the original 2-CD 1987 version. In addition to the extra music and the nicely-annotated booklet, there’s a reproduction of the 1938 concert program (seen on the left in the photo that Mike posted).
