Gramophone 1899: The first Gramophone Recordings in Sweden (2CD)

1899

CDB 1700-2 (2CD) Gramophone 1899: The first Gramophone Recordings in Sweden.

Thanks to the collaboration with the Swedish National Archive of recorded Sound and Music Images, Sweden first gramophone records have been woken from their 'Sleeping Beauty' trance at EMI's central archive in Middelsex, UK. This is truly an echo from the 19th century. A mix of storytelling, Opera arias, folktunes and melodies paints a picture of the very first steps of music reproduction.
