The public who gathered that day at Savoy-Plaza Hotel in New York enjoyed Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 performed by the Philadelphia orchestra directed by Leopold Stokowski. But there was no such orchestra at the hotel. Instead, there was an expensive record player, which rotated an RCA-Victor 33-1/3 rpm record. Today, it is considered to be the world’s first long-playing record. Do you think this is the only priority secured by this record? No. This was the first symphonic music record, which fitted into a single record. Before that, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 had already been recorded in Great Britain in 1914 but it took eight single-side records.
