Abstract

In May 1903, at the Paris branch of the Gramophone and Typewriter Limited, Edvard Grieg made nine 10-inch wax master discs, each containing a single piece of no more than a couple of minutes playing.2 With the exception of the cylinder numbers of the originals,3 and the surviving master copies subsequently pressed, virtually nothing else is known about this historic occasion. Grieg did not mention in his private writings his experience of recording in Paris while on a performing tour, possibly due to the overwhelming negative public reaction he received after openly criticizing the French for their ill justice in the Dreyfus affair.4 Grieg was by no means new to the art of recording. Two privately made wax cylinders, one featuring his wife, Nina, singing unaccompanied and the other with Grieg at the piano, are tentatively dated to the late 1880s.....
