Collaer 1998 gives the erroneous date of that of the first performance of Milhaud’s 1st Violin Sonata. It and other sources state the 2nd violinist was Larbey (family name only). Milhaud reported it in his autobiography as Robert Soëtens, which is the name in Duschesneau 1997.
No quartet performers are listed for this premiere.
The information in Collaer 1988 (“February 1923”), probably taken from the earlier Milhaud catalogue of Georges Beck, is incorrect. (See Additional references, below.)
A small notebook of Germain Prévost in the Mills Music Library, University of Wisconsin at Madison, indicates the date of the first performance, with a charming note from Milhaud, also dated March 13, 1923, on the next two pages. (In his notebook, Prévost also mentions concerts that took place in February 1923. See Problems, questions, above.)
The performers indicated were listed in the Washington Post in a pre-concert announcement on October 27, 1940.
Several sources indicate that the Budapest Quartet played the premiere. (See Additional references, below.)
The performers indicated were listed in the Washington Post in a pre-concert announcement on April 22, 1945.
