Hi Steve,

  Total agreement with all you wrote. Thanks so much, as always. What you raised is a huge NYC critical  topic during the 1950s and '60s that needs to be discussed and written about. No one is better qualified than you -- and that's not meant as flattery, believe me. That stuff had major influence. And not all to the good by any means.

  Don Tait

 Hi, Don and all,

Having known some of the Gramophone Shop and, foir that matter, all those at 
"The New Records" (H. Royer Smith, Phila.) reviewers I found that personal 
prejudices played a much stronger part in their reviews than in the coated-paper 
magazines.  They are useful to track items such as this but, unless there are 
strong specifics, I'm wary of the musical opinions.  Remember this was in the 
"Toscanini is the Greatest" days, Furtwaengler was the anti-Toscanini, etc.  
Brahms' piano recoitals were dissed if not done whatever the "American" way was.  
Not always, but often enough to be very, very cautious about the opinions 
expressed.  

Steve Smolian

  Record Ratings (Myers and Hill) shows the following on page 52 for Mercury MG 
15021 (10"):

  Brahms: Ballades from Opp. 10 and 118

  Op. 10 nos. 1-4 -- Priegnitz, p. 
  Op. 118 no. 3, in G Minor: Kurt Borack, p.

    The one review listed is negative. From The Gramophone Shop, October 1951,  
p. 3.

Borack was a prize winner in Germany in the 30's (see attached) and was active 
in the 50s in Mannheim in the Opera House. 


Nothing more to report,
