    Hello! Has anyone come across this piece? If so, a long shot: Does anyone have access to a recording of this piece they may be able to share, or any other information or links to information online?
    I’ve been asked by a conductor to play it in a concert on November 10 but I won’t see the music until next week at the earliest! Any information would be helpful. I gather it was written in about 1935 and there is only one recording in existence…

    Thank you very much in advance!
