[ARSCLIST] Pathe 12" Waldorf-Astoria DO
I just received a Pathe Actuelle 12" 78, 15105. It contains Chabrier's
Habanera (originally a piano piece, here orchestrated similarly to that by
the composer) and the March of the Toys from Herbert's "Babes in Toyland."
The performing group is credited as the Waldorf-Astoria Concert Orchestra.
It sounds like 20 or so musicians.
Who conducts? What was this doing on Pathe as a 12"? Something here
smells fishy- another group in disguise.
I can't say I've seen many other 12" Actuelles. Is there a story behind
