In 1915, Bruno Walter met the lyric soprano Delia Reinhardt when two staples of German opera, Die Zauberflöte and Der Freischütz, were given under him. Walter developed a deep affection for Reinhardt during his years in Munich. On March 28, Walter gave a double bill at the Hoftheater: Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Violanta and Der Ring des Polykrates. Although Johann Sebastian Bach's Matthäus-Passion was absent from his concerts in 1916, Walter did not neglect oratorios that year. He revived Robert Schumann's Das Paradies und die Peri in mid-March and presented George Frideric Handel's Samson in November. In 1917 Walter gave more premieres with the Musikalische Akademie. In 1918 three orchestral songs by Walter Braunfels—“An die Parzen,” “Auf ein Soldatengrab,” “Der Tod fürs Vaterland”—were performed for the first time under Walter. He gave Franz Schreker's Die Gezeichneten in 1919 and premiered Arnold Schoenberg's Gurre-Lieder the following year. A light opera by Paul Graener, Schirin und Gertraude, premiered in 1921, while Handel's Acis and Galatea was presented in 1922.
