Japanese CD
OPUS KURA OPK-2000 Joseph Szigeti - Sonatas and Short Pieces

Track 14 is listed as Kreisler: Tambourin Chinois - recorded 1927  WAX 2917
                      Joseph Szigeti, violin; Andor Foldes, piano.

This seems to be obviously an error - the matrix listed corresponds to COLUMBIA L2037 with 
Szigeti & Kurt Ruhrseit.  

Does anyone know anything about OPUS KURA, or have any idea how this error occurred?

The disc also contains a recording of NIGUN from Bloch's BAAL SHEM, matrix WAX 3437/3538 which
was on COLUMBIA D1557.

Foldes (as Andor Farkas) recorded complete BAAL SHEM with Szigeti in 1941 on US Columbia 
set X-188 70743-D/70744-D and MX-188 71129-D/71130-D.

OR does OPK-2000 contain something with Foldes, but wrong date/mx given ?????????????

Best wishes, Thomas.
