3 Greek recordings
Love song, sung by the psaltes Michael Euthymiades
Recording: Paul Kretschmer, Mytilene, Island of Lesbos, 13/9/1901
In the course of the preparatory work for a historical grammar of the Greek language Paul Kretschmer (1866-1956) travelled to Lesbos in 1901. During his researches he also put the Phonograph to the test. However, his informants did not speak loud and clearly enough to be recorded. Singers, on the contrary, were less timid of the apparatus, so Kretschmer returned from his - linguistic - expedition only with recordings of songs.
The recording can be heard in full length on "The First Expeditions 1901 to Croatia, Brazil and the Isle of Lesbos", OEAW PHA CD 7.
