RAOG=Russian Stockholders Company of Grammophone [Hits: 37405]  Discuss on forum [0]

In 1901 when gramophones were only about to became fashionable, the soloist of Imperial theatres N.N.Figner called the recording of voices on phonograph records as "profanation of art", and solemnly declared, that he will never sing for a "mouthpiece". But it is difficult to resist a temptation! In two years phonograph records with his voice were sold all across the Russia, bringing the actor considerable income. And in ten years N.N.Figner headed the Russian Joint-stock Company of Gramophones (RAOG) - one of the most popular labels at that time. The new company did not appear from nothing, it became a successor of Society "Orpheon", infamous manufacturer of piratical records. The head of «Orpheon» David Aleksandrovich Finkelstein, constantly being under court, conceived to begin a new life on which he was pushed by legislated in March, 1911 «The Copyright Law». Probably, he was guided also by other motives, but anyway, customers announce tells: «hereby we honored to inform, that since December, 1st (1911) launched its operations with wholly paid capital in 600 000 rubles the Russian Joint-stock Company of Gramophones».
