Note
  • Sound quality is fair to very poor in parts of disc 1. The recording is marred by extraneous noises, including a continuous hissing noise on disc 3. Disc 1 and disc 3 contain substantially the same material, but the audibility of the speakers on disc 3 is far superior to that of disc 1.
  • Discs 1 and 3 each contains a recording of the Louis Horst centennial tribute held at Juilliard School in New York City on Jan. 12, 1984, except that disc 1, of greatly inferior sound quality, contains musical accompaniment not on disc 3. Speakers include Martha Hill, Pearl Lang, Dorothy Bird, Jane Dudley, Harry Bernstein, Jean Erdman, Ruth Lloyd, and Yuriko, as well as two other speakers who are probably Anna Sokolow and Ted Dalbotten. Disc 2 contains a recording of an interview with Martha Hill conducted by John Gruen as host of the radio program World of dance, a series on the station WNCN-FM, New York, on April 8, 1984.
