Notes
EDVR legacy data indicates that masters MS-017269 through MS-017278 are recordings of Josef Hofmann’s “Golden Jubilee” recital at the New York City Metropolitan Opera House celebrating the 50th anniversary of his New York debut performance. Description for this master is not confirmed, as the Curtis Symphony Orchestra accompanies Hofmann on some, but not all selections.
Entries for the original masters have not been found in Victor ledgers. Information is from EDVR legacy data and the ledgers for 12/3/1937 re-recordings. Excerpts from MS-017271-1 are dubbed onto CS-017605, CS-017606, and CS-017607.
EDVR legacy data: "No information in recording book [i.e., Victor ledgers]—no dates shown. The prefix and the fact that the [re-recordings] on CS [matrix prefix] records spread over 26 sides would indicate these as being 16-inch MS [prefix] masters."
Hofmann's recital has been issued several times, but it is not known whether any releases derive from the Victor masters.
