Gerhard Taschne – Jan Balachowsky!

Gerhard Taschner under Jan Balachowsky pseudonyn. A live performance which is also considered to be played by Gerhard Taschner. This view is again supported by Walter Gerstberger and pupils of Taschner. The soloist in this recording plays the Joachim cadenzas and is accompanied by what undoubtedly is a “big name” orchestra. Taschner indeed played the work publicly on March 19, 1948 in Berlin’s Titania-Palast, accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Leopold Ludwig. 
Both on the reverse side of the sleeve and on the labels the soloist’s name is spelled “Balachowsky”. – Saulo Zucchello
