Dave,

If memory serves, unfortunately I transferred the 1990 release of the 1941 version from the tape that made the LP (I wasn't allowed to use either a 78 set, or metal parts).  That's all I was allowed to do.

The 2003 transfer I did that I mentioned before was done from the metal parts.  It should be significantly better than the earlier transfer.

Just as an aside, the Haydn 88th Symphony transfer came from my own set of shellacs, done around 1991.

Best,

Jon

Thank you both - at least that solves that mystery.  Jon, did you master the 1941 version from 78s or did you have another source, (I realize you may have done this years ago and you've done hundreds of other remasterings so I can't expect you to remember all of them).

 Horowitz/Toscanini Tchaikovsky Concerto issued by RCA on LP and CD dates from April 25, 1943.  There is a surviving live performance of the concerto from April 19, 1941 broadcast over NBC, but RCA never issued it.  The May 6 and 14, 1941 recording was issued on
 DM-800 on through to the Toscanini set on CD.

>I am in Florida at the moment so I don't have the resources to check for myself but surely someone has a Toscanini discography who could check the dates, May 6 and 14, 1941 to find out which recording of the Tchaikovsky was on those dates - it seems strange that a live concert would be repeated after over a week, unless the first date was a rehearsal that was recorded.  I seem to recall that the NBC broadcast and the live Carnegie Hall concert occurred quite close to each other,
 but not that close.

>>I just listented to this selection from the Complete Toscanini and I'm not sure which version it is.  It sounds slightly different than DM800.  The orchestral sound is much improved but the piano still sounds distant.  I thought it might be the live Carnegie Hall concert but the recording dates are May 8/14, 1941 and, as far as I know, that concert only took place once.
  There is a lot of surface
 noise in the first movement but it sounds more like 33 revs than 78 revs.  Jon Samuels is credited with mastering the CD.  John Pfeiffer is credited as being
