“The performers of the work of Chausson remain unidentified, but the Paganini live performance of what is known as the version by August Wilhelmj was recorded by German Radio in Munich on April 4, 1943 with the Reichssender Munich Orchestra under Berthil Wetzelsberger and violinist Guila Bustabo. The original war-time tape, which was in the archives of Munich Radio and had even been broadcast as late as 1950, no longer exists in Munich. However, when the bulk of German war-time tape recordings was handed back from Moscow to SFB Berlin in 1991, another copy of this tape was among that collection.”
