Sound Carriers


The collection of sound carriers at the Musikinstrumenten-Museum encompasses about 2,500 black discs (LPs and shellac records) and about 500 CDs. Most of them contain recordings which document and support the research of organologists.

The collection focuses on historicised performances on so-called original instruments, for example there are many records of the label DGG Archiv Produktion and TELDEC Das Alte Werk, but also foreign releases.

The collection of sound carriers is a reference library and is principally used for research purposes.
