The performance is likely Hofmann with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Rodzinski. The date is likely the 5th of March of 1944...which was the Sunday broadcast. The performance is currently available on Marston Records. It was also issued on LP and cassette by IPAM.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Hofmann Plays Rubenstein Concerto #3
Found my first classical records in months in the Goodwill bins today.One of these is one of those "under the table" or "back room" records from the 50s or 60s in a cover coated with fake leather.In almost 25 years of excavating for old classical records,I have found maybe a dozen of such discs,that are basically classical bootleg records.This one is a recording I had not seen,but was not surprised was out there.This is Josef Hofmann and an unidentified orchestra doing the Anton Rubenstein Piano Concerto #3 Opus 45.I am guessing this dates from the 1940s,about the same time as his Rubenstein #4,that has been issued many times.There is no orchestra or date given.Anyone have a clue?The "label" is GNR.Any idea what GNR stands for?Certainly not Guns N Roses.
