Alexander Hilsberg, solo violin - The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski
HMV DB.7875-80 Auto (DB.2522-7) Album no.232. RCA matrices: 2A.84513-24 Recorded: 8 October / 12 November 1934 - Studio 2 Camden Church, Philadelphia.
Transferred solely for my interest: early 1941 set. Recording is 2.5dB below average RCA levels so used 2 lots of Izotope de-click as the surfaces (maybe the matrices) were a bit 'hashy' in places: end of side 7 in particular, though it does 'soften' the clarity. 32 bit-float derived.
Walter Legge's notes included.
