Join us in the Skala Bartizal Library for an afternoon of Czech music history with a special guest speaker and some vintage records! This program is free and open to the public.
Filip Šír, Digitization Coordinator in the Department of Digitization and New Media at the National Museum of the Czech Republic, will talk about topics in Recorded Sound in the Czech Lands, 1900-1946, a book he recently co-authored.
The book, based on research from period publications and corporate catalogues, documents the history of the recorded sound industry in the Czech lands from 1900 until it was nationalized in 1946. The program will include playing vintage 78 rpm records.
