  Regarding Fiedler's work in Johann Strauss III's orchestra, in her 
biography of her father Johana Fiedler says that he toured in the orchestra during the 
summer of 1912. That's the only year she lists. If he did it during any other 
year it would still probably only have been in the summer, because Fiedler 
was a student in Berlin for the rest of the year as well as playing second 
violin in the Berlin String quartet (his father played first). The family returned 
to Boston for good in 1915, so the summer of 1912 seems to be the only 
definite time that Fiedler could have been in any of Strauss's recordings. 

  Did Strauss make any recordings in the summer of 1912? Is there a 
discography of them that gives recording dates? That would be nice to have in any case.
