None of the 10 inch disk sides were thought then to have survived, until the detective work of Mark Obert-Thorn made an amazing break-through, described below. This less-than-satisfactory result of an incomplete concerto was later to be corrected by the Allegro Ma Non Tanto - Serge Rachmaninoff* recording by Rachmaninoff, Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no 2. However, in some ways, this recording seems to me more flexible and nuanced than the later recording.
I find the performance to be spontaneous, alive and supple. This is surprising, given the physically cramped and technically difficult characteristics of recording with the acoustic process.

As described above, the partial first movement of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no 2 on two 12 Philadelphia Orchestra* - Piano C Victor sides was not issued in Ward Marston's friend and fellow master of recording restorations Mark Obert-Thorn reflected on the matrix number of the missing 10 in 25 cm disc of the Rachmaninoff first movement.
This matrix number B with takes 1, 2, and 3 had the usual B prefix for a ten inch disc matrices for 12 inch discs began with "C". He reflected that this disc would not have been archived with the other movements recordings, which were all 12 inch matrices.
A search in the Victor vault among the 10 inch acoustic discs did indeed locate the long missing portion of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no 2 first movement.
Perhaps not newsworthy to the general public, among amateurs of these recordings, this was a major event, and Mark Obert-Thorn was justly praised. Barnum, Frederick O. General Electric Company.

Rachmaninov from A. Swan Memoirs. Indeed colouristically and textually he is fascinating — try the A minor Mazurka — even when he is at his most capricious and the locus classicus of that is his recording of the B flat minor Sonata. Here he extends the finale in a way not sanctioned — shall we say — by Chopin but the result is one of uplifting power, with Rachmaninov sculpting waves of impetus and not an undifferentiated mf all the way through.
For all its recasting his performance of the sonata embraces all its moods, all its power and all its romance. Frederic Chopin 01 Ballade no.
Grave; Doppio movimento 17 2. Scherzo Allegro Ma Non Tanto - Serge Rachmaninoff* 3. Marche funebre 19 4. In the summer of in his family estate in Ivanovka and in the autumn in Moscow Rachmaninov, in his own words, was working like a comvict finishing his new Ormandy* * Stokowski* composition, Piano Concerto No3. He was doing his best to complete it in time for his planned tour in America. The premier performances took place on November 28 and 30, and with great success.

Here on this Russian Vista Vera disc Rachmaninov is heard as Ormandy* * Stokowski*, conductor and accompanist to the mezzo-soprano Nadezhda Plevitskaya in a rare recording of his arrangement of the haunting folk song, Powder and Paint. The selection of Tchaikovsky miniatures is delightful, Rachmaninov bringing his genius and musicianship to bear on these salon pieces, turning them into little gems.
