I wish SONY had properly labeled the Camden LP artist as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra instead of the silly pseudonym that Victor used during the 1950's. The balance of the pianist’s Columbia recordings are presented as a two disc reproduction of the 80th birthday LP set the label issued in 1983, and which includes Schumann’s Kreisleriana - actually the first complete score Arrau recorded for the label in 1946 - along with the Liszt Rhapsodies, Chopin Andante Spianato and Polonaise and a smattering of other pieces.

Referencing RCA Victor Orchestra* - Singing Games For Primary Grades, and the included insert for "A Library Of RCA Victor Records For Elementary Schools (Continued)", it seems this is a part of "Basic Patriotic Program." When and if a complete album for that entry is discovered, this entry should probably be removed or merged.
