In detail: Yes, EWK cond. Mahler´s Kindertotenlieder three times: two t. in Vienna (1920) and in Hamburg (1921). During his engagement as "composer in residence" at the Hamburg Stadt-Theater in 1921 he conducted and plaid furthermore: Beethoven´s violin-sonata D-major, Brahms´ Es-major-trio op. 40, R. Strauss-songs, Beethoven´s violin-concerto with Georg Kulenkampff-Post, Nicolai´s Windsor-Ouv., and as guest in Luebeck/North.Germany: L.Mozart´s Symphony G-major, R.Strauss´ Buerger als Edelmann.
During the same time he performed in Vienna: Beethoven´s Egmont-Ouv., L. Mozart´s Symph. again, Mendelssohn-Scherzo, Beethoven´s Violin-concerto again but with Alma Moodie. And not to forget:
1923 inSalzburg he accompanied Joseph Marx-songs and premiered songs by his dear friend Julius Bittner with B`s wife Emilie.
A late but remarkable performance happened 1934 during a concert when EWK not only conducted the P. Casals-orchestra but plaid an own Rosenkavalier-transscription perhaps from memory; score not know yet.
