Some Italian Releases

Han Enderman pointet me to some eBay items that showed some SUPER durium recordings in Italian durium covers.
These durium covers, 2 Successi, referring to the two complete tunes on one side, were released ca. 1934. The records belong to a series of classical tunes that were recorded by the Grande Orchestra di Valzer directed by L. Malatesta. The series contains about 10 classical records, but it is possible that not all of them have yet been listed.

This is the discographical information as published in my (paper) Durium (GB) Discography with all European commercial durium cardboard recordings.
