John McLaughlin Williams identifies 'The program for Philippa Schuyler's single recording'

[Philippa Duke Schuyler]

“Two readers have asked why none of the piano works of Philippa Duke Schuyler appear to have been recorded. John McLaughlin Williams has commented that Philippa Duke Schuyler made only one recording on an obscure label. We understand her own compositions were not part of the program.”
John McLaughlin Williams has posted a further comment this evening:

“The program for Philippa Schuyler's single recording was
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody No.6
Turina: Sevilla Op.2
Infante: Sevillian Variations
Copland: The Cat and the Mouse
Gershwin: An American in Paris (arr. Schuyler)
Ernest Middleton: Andante Satirico - "Cold Moon"
Antonio Casanova: Voyage Around Cape Horn

“Ernest Middleton was the owner of the label, which was called Middle-Tone Records. Here is a sample of their typical fare, featuring The Jive Bombers.
