Behrend was a graduate of Curtis in 1934, where she studied piano with Josef Hofmann and composition with Rosario Scalero. She subsequently taught (at Juilliard, among other institutions) and concertized, her performance emphasis having been in American music. Kelberine studied at the Kiev Conservatory and then in Vienna, his teachers including Busoni, Alexander Siloti and Leo Sirota. He and Behrend wed in Philadelphia, recorded together, and subsequently separated. Suffering from acute depression, Kelberine committed suicide after his final recital, which consisted of pieces in minor keys and of funeral connotations.

    RUTLAND BOUGHTON [composer/conduc-tor] dir. LONDON SYMPHONY ORCH. Boughton (Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, 1878-London, 1960) was a noted British composer in various idioms. His opera (or music drama, as he preferred) The Immortal Hour (1912-13) was perhaps his most acclaimed composition, declared by Sir Edward Elgar to be a work of genius. Some years later, Ralph Vaughan Williams commented, in another country, such a work as The Immortal Hour would have been in the repertoire years ago.

    XAVIER CUGAT [violinist]. Girona, Spain, 1900-1990. Cugats family emigrated to Cuba when Xavier was five. He studied originally as a classical violinist and played with Cubas Teatro Nacional Orchestra. His early years included recitals and touring as an assisting artist, notably with Enrico Caruso. In the early 1920s he made a transition from classical violinist to popular show business emtertainer and organized Spanish oriented bands with a tango emphasis. His popularity as a band leader was such that he appeared in a number of MGM musicals in the 1940s and made dozens of recordings with his bands from the 1930s well into the LP era. His six wives included entertainers Abby Lane and Charo. Cugats classical violin recordings (missing from Creightons Discopaedia), apparently from about 1920, are virtually unknown.

Her only recordings (other than piano rolls) date from the late 1920s and feature music of Robert Schumann. See also 78 rpm Album Sets.

    DALLIES FRANTZ [pianist]. Lafayette, CO, 1908-Austin, TX, 1965. His mother, Amelia Lueck Frantz (Paradise, CA, 1870-Wisconsin, 1957) was a noted concert soprano and teacher who was active in the midwest and eastern U.S. She was situated in Boston in the 1920s where she sang and taught. Dallies made his debut at the age of nine accompanying his mother in a recital. Winning a tri-state piano competition at the age of 14 (the next youngest of the 162 competitors having been 16), Dallies taught himself the organ and helped support himself as a church organist and choir director. Studies at the Huntington Preparatory School in Boston followed, where he became captain of the swimming team, breaking several New England records. A Bachelor of Music degree was secured at the University of Michigan. While there he studied with pianist Guy Maier and then for a period in Europe with Artur Schnabel and Vladimir Horowitz. His debut with the Chicago Symphony was in 1927 and with Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1934. Following this latter success, he was signed by Columbia Concerts and subsequently toured the U.S. in recital. He also appeared in three Hollywood films (Sweethearts, 1938; Balalaika, 1939 and I Take This Woman, 1940). In 1943, he was given a medical discharge from service, where he had served as an intelligence officer for a period. That same year he joined the faculty of the Univ. of Texas Music Department, with which he was affiliated until his death. Two months following a Carnegie Hall recital in 1945, Frantz collapsed and was hospitalized for nearly a year. He was plagued by poor health the rest of his life. He appears to have recorded only as an accompanist to

    his mother in a group of private recordings she made for Victor from 1924 to 1930. - Internet, mostly Jeff VoVilla.

    PAUL KOCHANSKI [violinist]. Warsaw, 1887-New York City, 1934. Kochanski began studies at the age of seven with Emil Mlynarski and then Csar Thompson at the Brussels Conservatory, where he graduated with highest honors. His debut was in London at the age of nineteen. His subsequent career was divided be-tween teaching and performing internationally. Making his New York debut in 1921, he was in great demand as a soloist with major orchestras and as a recitalist. He joined the faculty of Juilliard in 1924, where he taught between engagements until his death. A major champion of contemporary Polish composers, Kochanski particularly admired the music of Karol Szymanowski. According to Rubinstein, who loved him as his dearest friend, Kochanski liked straightforward people, played cards and

    sometimes spoke roughly. He could be abrupt, impatient or rude, and could even get angry and walk out, slamming doors behind him. -Final quote from Wikipedia.

    UBALDO PACCHIEROTTI [composer/conductor]. 1877-1916. Pacchierotti was an Italian composer of four operas written between 1899 and 1913. Two of these achieved a degree of recognition for the composer. LAlbatro (1905), his second, was well received at its premiere at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan and was revived successfully in Florence, 1914. His most popular opera was his third, dating from 1908, Eidelberga Mia. This was based on the same story as Sigmund Rombergs later operetta, The Student Prince.

The selection below is scored for wordless soprano (Luis M. de Berumen) and instruments (including the relatively exotic harp-zither and octavina). The recording was made in 1930. Internet sources.
