Seek Klavier LP of Artur Schnabel Ampico Rolls
By Martin Elste

-- forwarded message, please reply to sender and MMD --

The Berlin Museum of Musical Instruments will be presenting a recital
of Artur Schnabel performing by means of Welte reproduction rolls, on
the newly restored Steinway-Welte, on 9 September 2001, as part of the
International Artur Schnabel Symposion by the State Institute for Music
Research and the Berlin Academy of the Arts.

In this concert we would love to play the following Ampico roll played
by Schnabel and transferred on LP Klavier KS 134:

  Johann Sebastian Bach, Italian Concerto F major BWV 971
  (Ampico piano rolls nos. 62721, 62733, 62741)

Unfortunately we don't own this recording on the obscure Klavier label.
Is there any institution or private collector who could send us a high
quality transfer of this item?  We will, of course, be paying all
expenses (studio time, sound carrier - preferably CD-R, but DAT or
cassette is also possible, packing, air mail postage etc.), but we
should have the item here in Berlin by 5 September at latest.  Please
contact me as soon as possible!

Thanks to all who check their holdings if they can help us!  Yours

Dr. Martin Elste
