Ambitious Victor Opera Recordings

January 1910 was an ambitious month for the Victor Company, seeking to emulate the celebrity opera performances at the Met. Getting clear balanced excerpts from the primitive horn equipment was a challenge. Not all of the results were exciting but the final trio from Faust was a triumph. Geraldine Farrar was the star on this one but Caruso and Journet blended well and the end result was a credit to all concerned.
