    Hello, I purchased a number of records from a charity shop in Chessington Surrey, one of which was an EMI “Private Recording”. Written in pen is the German title of the music- I am sorry to say I cannot clearly read the writing but may say “Der Rebbe Lerent” but what may be of interset to you is it clearly states violin solo by S.KUTCHER there is then a signature underneath that may be Peter Morris.It was this inscription that led to me purchasing the record for further research. This is how I came across your website. Reading your website it is clear to me that the record would be of much more importance to you than to me. I am not a dealer etc so If you would like the record then it is yours. If you live in London I could even drop it off to you at a mutually convenient time, if not we can work something out regarding postage. Regards, David Knight.

      Dear David,

      That would be fantastic and really appreciate the offer. I actually live in the Netherlands at the moment and would gladly pay for any postage packing etc. and of course whatever you paid for the record. I have a bank account in the UK so I can do a direct bank transfer

      I’m still working through Samuel’s papers and discovering something new all the time, but a new recording would be wonderful.
