Subject: John Powell
I've just obtained copies of two privately made John Powell 78 sets- Mozart
Ssonata , K. 311 (4s) and 3 pieces by Powell (3 12" 78s) and Schumann 's
Humoresque . op. 20 (4 78s) . He was a Lescheizky pupil, highly praised,
and an American composer well known during his lifetime (1882-1963)
These were once considered among the most collectible of U.S. piano records.
In the past, I've sold each set at a price in the lower four figures. I've
not heard them mentioned in years. I couldn't find them in Popsike Are
they still so highly regarded or has time applied the soft pedal to their
I'll consider offers.
