"Malcolm Henbury-Ballan (MHBallan on here) has been kind enough to send me his DAT-format cassette on which this Lyrical Intermezzo was recorded, together with a number of other Bortkiewicz works (see below).  I have transferred them to MP3 format and put in the Downloads section. According to Malcolm all come from the archives of Austrian Radio and were recorded in the 1940s and 1950s.  I hope you enjoy.  Many thanks to Malcolm! Both Ukraine and Russia can claim Bortkiewicz, so I have put these recordings in the downloads sections for both countries!"

Please note that this recording of Bortkiewicz's Piano Concerto No. 1 is heavily cut in the last movement, which runs only 4:33 vs. Hyperion's complete recording of 12:14.  Apparently, performers used to take a lot of liberties with the score; there are different cuts marked by hand in the score on IMSLP and Marjorie Mitchell's recording has various omissions, too.
