  • Description

    Dubbing of brown wax cylinder recording made in the late 1890s or early 1900s. The first cylinder of Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 1 is missing, but the remaining four contain the first movement of this work with piano accompaniment, played perhaps in D major. Wilhelmj is unconfirmed as performer, but sources strongly suggests it.
