|The complete catalog of all 933 music rolls ever originally produced by Hupfeld for the Phonoliszt-Violina:|
and “Reference Set” Recut-Roll Collection
This was a 3-year project from 2013 to 2016 during which over 700 rolls out of the 933 ever produced, were located in over 20 private collections and museums. In an exquisite example of collector generosity, all requests to borrow original rolls were honored allowing me to listen to them and select the best 250 based on musicality, arranging quality, fitness for the PV and historical importance of the pieces. Extreme care was exercised in recutting with precision results. 20 sets were produced. The catalog is here, with innovative comments on many of the tunes:
There are 30 roll numbers sprinkled throughout this list on which there is no catalog appearance and either were never made or if you find one not listed here, please send the label info to me.
