I've recently acquired a number of 12-inch 78 rpm records, all on the Victor Victrola Red Seal label. They were all made between 1925, when Victor started using microphones to make recordings, and 1929, when the Victor Talking Machine Company was bought out by the Radio Corporation of America (better known as RCA).
"Coronation Scene" and "Polonaise" from Moussorgsky's Boris Godounov
, performed by the Royal Opera Chorus
Beethovan's "Moonlight Sonata," performed by Jan Pederewski
. Pederewski was a Polish composer who was much better known in the early 20th century than he is today. The flip side of this record is a minuet by him which was apparently pretty popular.
"Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life" and "Selections from 'Naughty Marietta'" performed by the Victor Light Opera Company
"Prayer," adpated from Handel's Te Deum
performed by Yehudi Menuhin
, violinist, who was between the ages of 9 and 13 when this recording was made
"Pomp & Circumstance," performed by the Royal Albert Hall Orchestra, conducted by the composer, Edward Elgar
"Celeste Aida," from Verdi's Aida
, and "Racconto di Rodolfo" from Puccini's La Boheme
, performed by tenor Giovanni Martinelli
, with an orchestra which isn't given credit
"Siegfried's Funeral March," from Wagner's Gotterdammerung
, performed by the rather anonymously named Symphony Orchestra
