Dear Alfor,

Thanks very much for these examples of Puchtler pouring out his beautiful heart.

Do you have the scores for

Liebeslied Op.41 No.4

Nächtlicher Ausblick Op.23 No.8?

I notice that Zentralbibliothek Zürich has them.

It is really hard to find an appropriate recording of
CHOPIN'S wonderful

Polonaise-Fantasie op. 61

My two favourites are the 1950s recordings by
Artur Rubinstein and Stefan Askenase.

This is the recording by ASKENASE.
A tape recording of course, issued both on LP AND shellac!
This transfer is from the original 10" shellac disc.
