From a Mechanically Translated via Revista de Arte – Logopress:
[The first release] corresponds to a selection of those produced between 1924 and 1943, covering all musical genres (operas, sonatas, paso dobles, tangos, operettas, popular songs, fox-trot), edited by some of the largest companies as His Master’s Voice, Odeon and Columbia.
The complete collection of slate records comprises some 21,000 pieces from the purchases, donations and legal deposit. The BDH team, in collaboration with the Department of Music and Audiovisual material will digitize all the sound and uploading to the network. The remote files are dated 1900 and were produced by French Pathé. Among the most prominent are an excerpt from Puccini’s La Bohème stand-up comedy and other foreign producers such as cucumber peel Pinedo. The oldest Spanish work is a fragment of the Breton teacher Dolores, played by Florencio Constantino.
