JEANNE BEHREND and ALEXANDER KELBERINE [pianists]. Behrend (Philadelphia, 1912-1988) was a graduate of Curtis and pupil of Josef Hofmann. Her New York solo debut was in Carnegie Hall, 1937. In building her repertoire she concentrated primarily on North and South American composers. Alexander Kel- berine (Kiev, 1903-New York City, 1940), also a pupil of Josef Hofmann as well as Busoni, Leo Sirota, Alexander Siloti and Abram Chasins, was the first husband of Jeanne Behrend. They formed an acclaimed duo-piano team, making a few recordings for Victor. He was a noted soloist and arranger as well. For some years, Kelberine suffered from acute depression. His final concert, at Town Hall the week before his death, was mostly of minor key music with funereal connotations, concluding with Franz Liszts Toten- tanz. His death was from an overdose of sleeping pills.

[JOSEPH CHARLES] ROSARIO BOURDON dir. VICTOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. Longueuil, Qubec, 1885-New York City, 1961. Bourdon began studying the cello at the age of seven. In 1897 he continued cello studies and piano as well at the Ghent Conservatory in Belgium, winning first prize with great distinction after being there less than a year. In 1902 he accepted a position as cellist with the Cincinnati Symphony and then in 1904 with the Philadelphia Orchestra. In 1909, Victor hired him in various musical capacities, including piano accompanist and cellist for a number of artists, as well as directorship of various Victor house ensembles. He became musical co-director of Victor in 1920, sharing the position with Josef Pasternack, and remained there until 1931, when the Depression virtually ended, at least for a period, the domestic solo and house ensemble recording activities. He then worked in Hollywood, on the radio, and in 1935 became the first conductor of the Montral Orchestra Symphonique. He
was awarded an honorary musical doctorate in music, 1944, by the Universit de Montral. Wikopedia. 1669. 12 Blk. Orth. Victor 36035. OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY/COLONIAL SONG
