There was one Unicorn album, according to the Boston Globe's very 
reliable classical music reporter Cyrus Durgin, that the Zimblers did 
with the Handel & Hayden Society in 1955.  He also mentions that they 
recorded an LP for "Boston Records" of the four Mozart horn concertos, 
and that they and Lukas Foss next recorded "a collection of intriguing 
modern music" including selections by Bartok, Iver, and Milhaud, also on 
Unicorn, in 1956  -- but he does not mention Siena anywhere.
