I've heard Sándor Lakatos (on record) play some tunes by him, and there's a great story in Szigeti's memoirs about when he was a little kid in Budapest, he and his father would frequently go to some cafe where a certain Pali Racz (Laci's son) would be playing, and would always play the first few bars of Bach's E major Preludio (mixed into whatever csárdás he was playing at the time) as a greeting to young Jóska.

Where did you find these records?!

I have downloaded 27 tracks (old 78rpm) musically very interesting,in old style no more played to day

Pali Rácz (1830-86)
