composer Mario Castenuovo -Tedesco to UCLA music library, Special
Collections. These records have been part of a family collection, a
family with ties of friendship to the composer Mario Castelnuovo

All four reference recordings are 78s. They each have a typed label on
one side. Each label has a reference number that starts with "046."
Two of the recordings are signed on their white covers and include
inscriptions to Joseph Leonard, a pianist and organist in the Lost
Angeles area (1936-'79).
All four recordings are in good condition.
