Re: [ARSCLIST] Warsaw Concerto / STINSON SLP 38 / SCHWANN Catalog

Thomas Stern wrote:
I have received the following citation in response to an inquiry on another forum concerning STINSON LP's.
May 1955 Schwann catalog lists Stinson 38 (p. 128) as:
Concert—Warsaw Concerto, etc. (piano, organ, violin)
It seems unusual that a classical selection should appear in a series of folk-blues-jazz recordings, so I wonder
if anyone can confirm or counter this information.
Did the Warsaw Concerto, and other classical titles appear on Asch/Disc/Stinson 78's or lp's?
If someone has the referenced Schwann catalog, can they confirm the listing, or the existence of a different Stinson label, or
a mis-interpretation of the label cited?
Many Thanks!

The Warsaw Concerto is rarely (if ever) considered a "classical" work. That is not necessarily snobbishness since in neither form nor content is it more than a popular piece in classical guise.

I do not have that Schwann, but the January 1955 and 1956 editions list only the Smokey Mountain Suite for Addinsell, no Warsaw Concerto at all.
