This three CD set marks the next installment of the historically significant release of unpublished Edison diamond disc masters. Thomas Edison, inventor of the phonograph, began his own recording company in 1898, and for the next 14 years, he released only wax cylinder recordings, while by 1905, most other companies were using the more practical flat disc format. By 1909, the cylinder was a dying medium, and Edison realized that his company needed to compete in the disc market. Consequently, he strove to produce a better-sounding disc than any of his competitors. For nearly three years, he made disc recordings before publishing any. Over a hundred of these wax disc masters still exist in the Edison archive, unheard by anyone until now. These recordings contain not only some very fine singing, but also, some of the best sound to be heard on acoustic recording. This volume contains three recordings by the renowned baritone, Giussepe Kaschmann; tenor Umberto Macnez; contralto Marie Delna; sopranos Adelina Agostinelli, Celestina Boninsegna, Carolina White, Maria Galvany, and a marvelous duet from Verdi\'s Otello with Marie Rappold and Leo Slezak.
