Where can I find their musical records?
My great Uncle was Jaroslav Siskovsky and I wondered how to find any of the recordings? He wrte the book "Fiddle of the Hoof" of which I have 3 signed copies to; myself, my parents (where he played at their wedding for the last time) and my grandmother's. It wqould be great to hear him play for myself.
RE: Where can I find their musical records?
I have an original photo of the NY String Quartet including your uncle dedicated to Ethel Leginska and autographed by all four of them. Trying to determine value. Can you offer any assistance? Good luck with your music search.
