Title
Page Wikipedia de Fred Gaisberg |
Description
« Fred Gaisberg arrived in Cairo in March 1906 and again in late September 1906, at which times he made 162 and 272 ten-inch recordings, respectively. An additional 40 12-inch recordings were made during October. Arguably, then it can be said that the gramophone itself altered the course and character of Egyptian music. What we hear today in old records has much to do with the technical limitations of early recording as it does the music itself. That said, what is left constitutes a remarkable legacy.

W. Sinkler au Caire
Description
In 1905 the expert W. Sinkler Darby was sent to Cairo, where he made nine 7-inch, 138 ten-inch, and twenty twelve-inch recordings of genuine traditional music. Classical, improvisational, poetic, theatrical and popular styles were all represented, and the musicians were almost always people who brought a deep understanding of the idiom to their art. Yusuf al-Manyalawi, the most important of the early singers, had been a court musician to King Abd al-Hamid and when first recorded by the Gramophone Company, in about 1905, he was already 65 years old.

Franz Hampe au Caire
Description
In the spring of 1903 the London-based Gramophone Company sent engineer Franz Hampe to Cairo where he made 165 single sided recordings. Later that same year, his endeavours having been manufactured in London and shipped back to Cairo, the first catalogue of Arab music was presented to an eager public.
