Meloclassic makes a stunning announcement on facebook.


Quote
We have recently discovered a recorded recital (1940) of Ignaz Friedman, never issued in any format.

Quote
According to Friedman's A.B.C. itinerary in 1940, he gave at least 16 definite recitals in Australia. The records come from a collection recently donated from the heirs of a music lover in Perth to an archive. This collection has two acetate discs from A.B.C. broadcast in 1940. Performer: Ignacy Friedman. Hopefully the archive will be able to transfer them for us assuming that they are playable.

No details yet.... Spread the news!

I sincerely hope people do. I remember reading a while back that a lot of his LP recordings had been recycled and used as roadfill in Australia. Just unbelievable. Shocked
