The pianist Kabi Laretei made a record for Philips in 1965, Paul Hindemith - "Ludus Tonalis". It was
released by US Philips as PHS 900-096 (stereo) and PHM 500-096 (mono). It is a dense, hour-long solo
piano work, so the audience was probably somewhat limited. At the time Ms. Laretei had performed the
work at Carnegie Hall in NYC and was somewhat of a celebrity due to her good looks and the fact that
she was married to film director Ingmar Bergman. She was a very fine pianist, according to press
accounts of the day.
Anyway, I'd like to know if this was released by Philips in Europe, and if so what is the catalog
number for the stereo version.
BTW, it was produced by Harold Lawrence and recorded at Fine Recording, probably by Bob Eberenz or
George Piros. The cover photo of a beautifully intense Ms. Laretei was by Mary Morris.
Any factual info on non-US releases much appreciated, scans of non-US covers even more appreciated.
