Tchaikovsky's Voice

Recommended Posts

Not, perhaps, what you'd expect:

Also heard: Safonov, Lavrovskaya, Anton Rubinstein (speaking only, despite Lavrovskaya's pleas for "just a few chords, for posterity" :thumbsup:), recorded in Moscow, January 1890, by Julius H. Block.

Details about that and other similar recordings are here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/26/arts/mus...6waki.html?_r=2

It would be even better to hear this (and some of the others linked by YouTube [including one of Brahms both speaking and playing] and in the Times' article) cleaned up, without the pops, clicks and other noises. Digital audio technology should make this pretty easy. It's been done for other early recordings.
