[ARSCLIST] Siegfried Borries and Johannes Schueler
Borries was born in 1912 and died in 1980. As a subsequent poster said, he
was the concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic for a time. He made numerous
records, including a companion 78 to Beethoven's F Major Romance on Electrola
CD 4661, the G Major (also with Schueler and the BPO) on Electrola DB 4662 and
a scarce 78 set of Bruch's Concerto no. 1 with the Prussian State Orchestra
conducted by Fritz Zaun on Electrola DB 7672/4. A lot of LPs too. The Busoni
Concerto with Celibidache was preceded by one in the 1950s with the Berlin Radio
Symphony Orchestra conducted by Arthur Rother on (USA) Urania URLP 7043.
Schueler (1894 - 1966) had a moderately distinguished career and also made
numerous recordings on 78s and early LPs, including an excellent Haydn 100
with the Vienna Philharmonic for the German Imperial label on 78s. Many more
recordings for that label, too. Also Boris Blacher's Concertante Musik with the
BPO on Electrola 78s. There were a number of USA Urania LPs by him, too.
Hope this helps. And yes, the record you got is a good one!
