Re: [ARSCLIST] Fwd: [ARSCLIST] Piston Symphony #2
So this would be a bad time to make a wise crack about finding
discographical information in the Ford Museum in Dearborn? If the guy
had composed a couple hundred symphonies, he could've named them after
different engine configurations. I doubt he would've made it high
enough for muscle car V8s, but still, if he lived today, he could earn
some endorsement money.

Please respond to my messages with specific facts. All right?
What do you have of the Piston Symphony?
Do you have discs of a live performance recording of Piston's Symphony no.
2 during the 1940s?
You claimed that you did, Roger.
Please post the details. Koussevitzky [note the spelling of his name] never
conducted this music. YES??
I think the collector community is always eager to welcome a good newcomer,
but this stuff from you gives you a black eye, Roger. Plus your posts
addressing members as "silly."
Don Tait, who's been a collector since 1957 and hopes to never stop
learning from his peers....

Like I said,I'm not sure if this is the #2 or not.It is definitely a Piston piece.If you have a database of all of Koussevitsky's broadcasts,you can probably find out what piece it is sooner than I can.I would imagine the BSO has a complete recorded concert library,either on disc or tape.
I have a huge record collection.I am always losing track of stuff.I have about thirty records I was going to loan to Baylor University for their gospel music project.The 45s,and 78s I can locate,but there are six exceedingly obscure 60s vocal group Lps,on Song Bird and Savoy I own.These are Lps that Malaco and Universal have no master tapes,and in one case,no documentation on.That's great,but I now cannot find these records,and I am starting to get worried about it.
If you used to buy from Dave Canfield,when he ran Ars Antqua,you know he used to sell records like this Koussevitsky all the time.Now nobody does.

You have written before about this Koussevitzky/BSO recording of Piston's
Symphony no. 2 that you claim to have. You have been asked for more details
about it in the past, as Karl Miller recently did again, and you have never
If you have this, it is an important document, as I think Karl has made
clear. And as he has also made clear, Koussevitzky never conducted the symphony.
Please give details. Please explain.
RCA Victor's "Vault Treasures" LP series was introduced in November, 1956.
The Koussevitzky "LVT" to which you are referring is LVT-1016 -- Harris's
Symphony no. 3 and Hanson's Symphony no. 3. It was a conversion from Victor
Please explain about your reported recording of Koussevitzky/BSO in
Piston's Symphony no. 2. Many of us look forward to your response.
