Cephale et Procis Suite

St. Louis Little Symphony
Summer 1957 (Mono)
B.91

The Posthorn discography gives a date of Summer 1967 for this work, but it seems doubtful that a relatively obscure work performed with a relatively obscure orchestra would exist in two different versions. Furthermore, a catch-all date of 1967 is given in some sources for both this and the other St. Louis performances now established as being from 1957. In the absence of further evidence, it would seem most likely that 1957 is the correct date, and that 1967 was simply a typographical error.

Die Zwillingsbrüder: Overture

Berlin Charlottenburg Opera Orchestra
1929 (Polydor)
B.9

This recording appears in the Polydor (Japan) complete catalogue for 1936, as the sixth side of a set containing the BPO Schubert 5th. I know of nobody who has ever seen a copy, so it is entirely possible that it is a misprint in the catalogue. It is worth noting, however, that the Schubert Fifth Symphony only occupied five 78rpm sides. The date of 1929 is an assumption based on the coupling.
