Gramophone Co. [Hits: 69894]  Discuss on forum [0]

The histories of this company as well as the history of the invention of gramophone record and gramophone itself are inseparably related to the name of talented inventor, engineer and businessman Emile Berliner. In 1893 Berliner had formed the United States Gramophone Company that located at 1410 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C.. This company offered the first seven inches disc records in November 1894 on the Berliner Gramophone label. After various mergers, divisions, lawsuits, and injunctions, this company was to give rise to the Victor Talking Machine Company. The company was incorporated in Camden, New Jersey on October 3, 1901 by Eldridge R. Johnson.

In England, the Gramophone Company was incorporated in 1899. In the same year the Deutsche Grammophon (DGG) branch of the Gramophone Company was established in Berlin, from which sub-branches were formed in Russia and Austria. In a few years the joint-stock company "Gramophone" incorporated multiple plants in 30 countries.

For processing records for Russian market a new plant was built in Riga. Officially, the "Gramophone" society acquired manufacturing permission in April,2 1903. In the same year of 1903, the "Gramophone" took over the second factory in Riga from its competitor International Zonophone Company.
For a long time the records were just single-sided. Since January 1, 1911 they start to sell also two-sided records.

Military operations of 1914 had forced company to relocate the manufacture from Riga to Moscow where on the Stshipok Street the Writing Amour (Pishushij Amour) plant had been established.

In the beginning of 1918 the Moscow factory was stopped. All its equipment had been moved to the "Fifth Anniversary of October" factory (former Brothers Pathé factory).

Russian-Records.com kindly thanks Alan Kelly for the enormous amount of hardwork and time that he invested in compilation of A Complete Numerical Catalogue of Russian Gramophone Recordings made from 1899 to 1929 in Russia and elsewhere, and for the courtesy copy of it that he gifted to our Portal. As the name says, Alans Catalogue is Complete, that makes it far superior to any other Catalogues. Another feature of tremendous importance is that the Catalogue is bilingual. All Russian titles are preserved in transliterated format, their presence is extremely important for proper identification of records. There is also their English translation that makes the Catalogue interesting for users all around the Globe. And last but not least important feature is that the Catalogue is distributed in the electronic format. It allows keeping low price (about $20 with shipping), and perform all kinds of computer searches.

The Catalogue would never be perfect without help of Vladimir Gurvich who scrupulously checked every word. Unfortunately, Vladimir suddenly passed away leaving the job unfinished, therefore a part of the Catalogue remains unchecked. Vladimir also did not check the Ukrainian titles.

Judging by the font type of the matrix number one can be assume that the records were manufactured by the Gramophone Company. This assumption is supported by the fact that the matrix numbers 17365b and 17368b of the first record, as well as matrix numbers 18251b and 18364b of the second record fall into gaps in the range of numbers from 17216b to 17449b recorded by Fred Gaisberg in St. Petersburg during his session of 03.14.1913 - 04/10/1913.
