LIFE


arrived in 1890 in Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA
±1904 agent ODEON (Argentina)

also cinema pioneer

"Glucksmann had started in the record business by taking an agency for the German-owned Odeon label around 1907. Still thinking in Imperial terms, the Berlin based record company preferred to appoint resident Germans as overseas agents whenever they could. Glucksmann's contract allowed him to market imported Odeon product exclusively, and wholesale it to smaller dealers throughout his given territory. By about 1914 he was also actively engaged in recording local artists, and he had persuaded Odeon to finance a processing and pressing plant in Buenos Aires rather than having masters shipped to Berlin for pressing. It would be cheaper in the long run, said Glucksmann, because he was utterly convinced that he could sell vast quantities of 'national' records - by which he meant Tangos. Berlin agreed and, in an unusual move, built Glucksmann a processing plant in the Belgrano area of Buenos Aires, a well-heeled and leafy suburb. They also installed a Berlin-trained engineer, a Mr. Kruger, as resident recorder." (from: "The Tango Trip" by Paul Vernon)
