The Schulz-Fürstenberg-Trio ODEON recordings were also issued on PARLOPHONE in England.  Perhaps
GRAMOPHONE reviewed them, and may have provided some biographical information.  If anyone has
access to the Gramophone archive and would kindly do a search, it may answer the questions
about BORACK.

THANKS!
Best wishes, Thomas.
