Seek Rollography Data - Vladimir de Pachmann
By Albert Petrak

Nigel Nettheim of Australia has written to the RPRF with questions
about Vladimir de Pachmann which I attempted to answer, but lacking
specific detail, I need help from any interested member.  Here they

 - - -

1.  The Welte catalog includes an item: "1228 Pachmann: Improvisation:
Sabouroff - Polka."  I've been unable to find out what "Sabouroff"
means, or anything else about this item.  Can you suggest any way I can
find out more about it?

2.  The Artecho catalog includes an item "2038 Mendelssohn Lied ohne
Worte ?".  How can I try to find out which Lied it is?

3.  I'm trying to assign dates of playing to the Pachmann items.  I'm
quite confused as between date of playing and date of release or date
of catalog, in the printed catalogs.  Is there a source of information
on dates of playing rolls (in this case Welte, Duo-Art, Artecho)?

I realise these questions may not be easy, but will appreciate any

Thanks, Nigel.

I conjectured that the "Sabouroff" question was a Russian folk tune
in origin.  Further, I was unable to identify the Mendelssohn, as the
Art-Echo listing (and Larry Sitsky's tome) are not more specific.
I conjectured it would be either Welte 1209 or 1210 originally.

Finally, I noted that Richard Howe's collection of printed material
from the roll era had been donated to IPAM, but that any information
desired (from past experience) would result in either being ignored
or statement that the Howe collection was still in process of being
detailed, and no specific request could be honored at present.

Anyone having any information of the above is requested to contact
Nigel as above.  Also, were it to be of interest, his comprehensive
web site on Pachmann is extensive and illuminating.

Best to all,
