SORTING

Sorting the table can be helpful for certain purposes. Clicking on any column header will sort the table rows on that column in ascending order; blanks cells are sorted in last position. Clicking again on the same header will change the sort order to descending; a small arrow appears in the header to indicate the current sort order. Clicking on further columns will re-sort the table, maintaining the order of the previously sorted items as subsets within the new sort order.

The initial order results from sorting the items by composer and within that order by date, for which one clicks first the header for date and then composer. The initial order can also be recovered by clicking on your browser's refresh button.

COLUMNS

IDENTIFICATION:

Composer:

Work: Capital letters indicate major keys, lower-case letters minor.
The contents of the medley of Schubert Waltzes was not originally documented; the items are Schubert's D365: No. 2 in Ab, No. 12 in Ab, No.19 in G, No. 21 in G, No. 29 in D, No. 33 in F, and D779: No.27 in Eb.

Date: The date of recording is intended, rather than the date of issue.

Matrix: A matrix number identifies one side, typically of a 78 rpm recording. When a matrix number ends with a hyphen followed by a number, the latter number indicates the take in the given session.

Comments: These are of various kinds.

PRODUCTION DETAILS:

Timings can only be approximate. For CDs, the timing printed in the CD's documentation sometimes does not match that indicated by a playing device. For CDs the timing includes any silence on the track before and after the playing.
Tracks are shown as B3 for track 3 of side B.

78s:

Col: Columbia (US).

LPs:

Columbia: The LPs consist of transfers from 78s.
12": ML 4476 ("A Piano Recital of Chopin"), ML 4624 ("Maryla Jonas plays Piano Miniatures").
10": ML 2004 ("Piano Music of Chopin") (issued in 1948), ML 2036 ("Chopin Mazurkas"), ML 2101 ("Chopin Mazurkas"), ML 2143 ("Chopin Nocturnes").
7": 3-228 (ZLP 1018, 1019) (this is 33 rpm but not flexible).
Another 12" LP, not shown in the table, is Columbia Entré RL 6624 Green label ("Chopin Mazurkas"), which combines the complete contents of ML 2101 and ML 2036.

RATIONALE

My reasons for attempting this discography were that (i) in connection with my research into her playing, I needed a discography of Maryla Jonas, as complete as could be managed and covering all media, and (ii) I did not know of the existence of such a discography.

I am releasing it on the Internet in the hope that (a) it might be helpful to others, and (b) others might help to correct errors and provide additional information. I hope to add some sound examples in due course.

ERRORS

Errors in earlier sources:
As is commonly found in the documentation of recordings, misprints and other errors occur.

Errors in this discography:
Errors, gaps and question marks remain in the present discography. The help of readers in rectifying these will be greatly appreciated; for this purpose or to make other comments, please send email (via my home page).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
