Hungarian Dance Suite No. 1
Brahms, J

In 1889, when Johannes Brahms was 56 years old, a representative of American inventor Thomas Edison visited him in Vienna and invited him to make an experimental recording. Brahms played an abbreviated version of his first Hungarian dance on the piano. The recording was later issued on an LP of early piano performances. While the spoken introduction to the short piece of music is quite clear, the piano playing is largely inaudible due to heavy surface noise. Nevertheless, this remains the earliest recording made by a major composer.
