Description

This unique discography of 78 RPM recordings extensively profiles solo and group horn performers, including chamber ensemble and orchestra recordings. This work provides, in addition to detailed data about individual recordings, invaluable commentary on actual selected 78 RPM recordings. Some of the recordings are no longer available in reissue and are therefore not easily accessible to the general public. Biographical information contributes to the wealth of researched information this discography provides. This discography of 78 RPM horn recordings fills a gap in bibliographic literature concerning horn recordings. A valuable reference to hornists, musicians, and discographers, the exhaustive, descriptive detail consists of data collected from numerous sources. Both well-known and obscure artists are researched.
