Beethoven Romance op. 50 (Polidor 1925)

I was told by “coincidence” shortly before my father died end of March 2008 that my great-uncle Hans Thierfelder was a well-known, successful and important conductor. Within my family is transmitted, that among other things he conducted the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Bayreuth Festival during the 3rd Empire (although he himself was honest non-political and Buddhist). The generations of my family who knew more about it are unfortunately all died. As far as I find time I try to research what can be proven and documented yet. This morning I found the following article with free mp3-Download in a blog of a Netherlands lover of old shellac discs (78 rpm):
