Some time ago I was contacted by Steve Bernard's daughter Sandra Bernhardt, who was pleased to find here the posts about her father and promised to send me the recordings I did not have. Also she was so kind to write a text about her father, clearing some misinformation about him which were also published at the usual hub for distorted facts: Parallel Realities.
Here is Sandra's integral text covering the so far undisclosed parts of Steve Bernard's life and history:
Steve Bernard was born in Brasov, Romenia (Roumania).
He was a Jew but before getting married to my mother, Eva, he converted to Christianity (Catholic). They got married on Dec, 19, 1954 in a Catholic church named Nossa Senhora da Paz, in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Eva, was a very famous and gracious dancer, known as Eva Lanthos. She was born in Budapest, Hungary.
As far as I know, he began to play classical music very early, in Brasov, Roumania (not in Vienna).
At the age of 18, he was awarded in several Competitions in Vienna, played piano in cinemas and with some singers like, Lilly Fayol, Gina Liano and Arthur Allam. A few years later he had his Band with presentations in Bucharest, Roumania.
Moved to Paris to study at Sorbonne (Philosophy and Music), made tours in England and Canada before coming to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1952, after Paul Péri's invitation.
Paul Péri, was a famous French actor / singer. He invited Steve to play at the Golden Room, Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio in 1952. Some days later Mauricio Lanthos and Waldir Calmon invited him to play the Hammond B3 Organ, recently bought, at Arpège (nobody knew how to manage the Organ, just Steve!) He needed to live in a tropical city in order to feel better from his constant pains (MD recommendation) and decided to live in Rio.
The next step was the his first record - Steve Bernard e sua Arte - produced by Sinter in 1954 and the second one in 1955., formed his band and .... you have all information about him after that...

With this post, singer Victor Rafael's known discography consisting of two career albums is brought to light, together with the orchestration directed by Maestro Astor Silva.
The bad news is that his other album Quando A Noite Acontece (1963), posted less than two years ago you may only admire by looking at the front cover, as the file containing his music has been deleted from server and I added the horrifying DOWNLOAD YESTERDAY advice next to the text previously leading to Depositfiles.
But you can enjoy this one consisting of:
01. Sadismo (Ciloca Madeira)
02. Não Quero Mais (Walter Santos / Luiz Carlos Paraná)
03. Babá Granfina (Djalma de Carvalho / Francisco Tavares)
