I don't have any information on #1, but the Stefan Wolpe album was on Esoteric 5530. The conductor was Samuel Baron, David Tudor was the pianist, and Frances Magnes was the violinist. We own the original recording of this, but it has not been remastered as of yet.

These historic recordings, available for the first time in nearly half a century, mark the first recorded work of maverick composer and teacher Stefan Wolpe <http://www.allmusic.com/artist/stefan-wolpe-p5963>. The three selections here, "Sonata for Violin and Piano" (1949), "Passacaglia for Piano" (1936), and "Quartet for Trumpet, Tenor Saxophone, Percussion and Piano," (1950/1954) were recorded exceptionally by Jerry Newman <http://www.allmusic.com/artist/jerry-newman-p146074> in Esoteric Studios in New York, shortly before**
Wolpe <http://www.allmusic.com/artist/wolpe-p5963> left his post at Black Mountain College and moved permanently to New York City
