September, 2011: Symphony No. 3 - Finale / Fritz Lehmann / Reich Recording
One June 28th of 1940, Fritz Lehmann (1904 1956) conducted the Orchester des Deutschlandsenders und Reichhssenders Berlin in a performance of the Fouth Movement to Bruckner's Symphony No. 3. This was one of the first recordings of any part of the Symphony No. 3 with the exception Anton Konrath’s Scherzo and its brief use (for wordless women's chorus) in the opening credits of the 1933 film, "Supernatural."

The recording was made on three 78 rpm transcription discs. For years, the Deutsche Rundfunk Archive in Weisbaden (it has now been re-located to Frankfurt) only owned two of the three matixes. In 2009, two discs of this recording appeared on Ebay and they were purchased by me. When it was determined that one of the discs that I held was the one missing from the DRA, I donated that disc to them and the complete recording of the Finale was finally restored.
