Rubinstein plays Liszt

Sony has issued a 2-CD set compiling many of Arthur Rubinstein's Liszt recordings.

In your 2001 review of an issue of Rubinstein playing Liszt you mentioned the 1910 Favorit recording of one of the Hungarian Rhapsodies as being a lost recording. Incredibly a dub of this record turned up a week ago on YouTube together with the other side of the record. Here are the links:

It turns out at that prior to the appearance on YouTube, a dub had been posted on Allan Evans' site in a post about Friedman:

You will find the links if you scroll down. Further down in the comments you will see that Allan Evans explains that James Methuen-Campbell received a dub of the disc from the archive in Warsaw of Towarzystwo im. Fryderyka Chopin and shared it.
