>(1934-1944) as Court Violonist, professor at the Royal Institute of Music,

Apparently Kontorowicz was an excellent violonist (fellow-student of Jascha
the friend is francis falceto, the compiler of the ethiopiques cd-series.
on the moment he is in the field in ethiopia somewhere doing research
i found some references to ethiopian/african music in your mailing list but
none to kontorowicz, the relevant archive piece i found impossible to open.
if you could help my friend (and me) in any way with info on this violinist
i'd be delighted
