My next presentation for the ARSC-New York Chapter will be ³Broadway
Musicals Around the World ‹ on Record.² It will take place on April 28 at
the Sonic Theatre at CUNY/CCNY. The audio/video/live program will include
recordings of American musical theatre works in at least 15 different
languages from the late 1890s to the present. The only show element that I¹m
missing is a vocal from ³The Belle of New York,² the first home grown
product to become a raging hit all over the Continent.
Most preferable are the records by Mia Werber, who provides the best
MIA WERBER - ³Drum lehre mich das Kussen.² Gramophone 43217 or ³Folget nur
des Glaubens Licht, 43219. Both recorded in Berlin in 1902
Any of the following also would suffice if a Werber can¹t be located:
KARL STREITMAN ³Du mein Girl.² Gram. 42340. Berlin, 1901; RUDOLPH SIEBOLD
- ³Stolz von New York,² Gram. 42084, Vienna, 1901; MIMI JASZAI belepoge,
Odeon 5056, Budapest, 1905; JAN SZTERN -
Tenor aria in Polish, Gram. 2-22144. Vilna, 1903; STANISLAW BOGUCKI
³Dziewcze me,² Columbia XP 56202. Warsaw, 1904; BOGUCKI and HELENA BOGORSKA
- ³Habukuk I² duet, Columbia 3523, Warsaw, 1904; WIKTORYA KAWECKA soprano
song, Gramophone 23367. Warsaw, 1902¹ WLADYSLAW PRONIEWICZ -
(³Just one girl²-waltz?). DacCapo Pl 19172,Warsaw 1908; PRONIEWICZ - waltz
song, Gram. 22096. Warsaw, 1902; JOZEF REDO waltz song, Gram. 2-22875.
Warsaw,1905, or any 1907 vocal made by members of the CAMPAGNA d¹OPERETTA
MARESCO of Milan, on Gramophone.
mp3, wav or CD would be fine. Thank you very, very much.
