Restoration comment
 
Unfortunately, the outermost grooves are damaged to the extent that nothing but noise can be played back. Fortunately, almost all recorded marches, including this one, have repeating fragments. I was able to substitute the beginning with practically identical fragment taken from the middle. The replacement even exceeds the original because it overlaps a few false notes probably during recording there was a fluctuation of the rotation speed of the disc.

This is a special issue designated for Spanish-speaking market.
 
Unfortunately, there are many mistakes on the labels of both sides. On this label mistakenly indicated, that this is German Harmonica recorded in Hannover. In reality this is a recording of Russian Harmony Orchestra of W.Warshavski. made in Moscow in July, 27 1908. The hint is the matrix number that is well aligned with the rest recordings of Harmony Orchestra shown in the 1910 Year Catalogue. On the reverse side label incorrectly indicated the date of recording 27-07-1911 (in encrypted format read here about decrypting sorry, only in Russian now). The year should be 1908 the same as on the opposite side.

Rerecording
 
Yes , this is the second take for this title .
So far as I am aware , no copy of the first take has turned up .
This item was recorded at the same session as 22891 Nochenka matrix 621x and 22892 Life for the Tsar matrix 622x .

Rerecording
 
It looks like a case of rerecording. The first time "Disenchantment" was recorded in January, 1901 along with five other titles and had matrix number 576x that is in the range of numbers 572x - 577x that were made at this session. For some reasons recording had been repeated in February and received matrix number 623x.

Strophes - O, sadness and longing | bernikov |  | 18.07.2007 22:46   
Well, on the RAOG labels the girl is staring right at you,
 
while on the Metropol labels she probably checks with her scores

It looks like reissue of the original "Gramophone" record made in post-revolutional time
 
The argument is the fact that in the title they used modern spelling adopted right after the October Revolution in December, 1917

Initials .. on the Trade Mark
 
apparently belongs to selling agent K.G.Sharlakh that was hired by the director of International Zonophone Company in Europe for marketing Zonophone records and machines manufactured by the Berlin factory. Following is the extract from Gramophone and Phonograph magazine 9-12, 4-25 March of 1903: K.G.Sharlakh for 12 years used to sell metal goods in Petersburg. In 1901 he signed a contact with Zonophone director in Berlin Mr.Prescott and became the sole representative of Zonophone in Russia.

It is extremely rare record, one of five Vialtzeva records made for early Zonopnone
 
The full list was published by Robert Bauer in his "New Catalogue of Historical Records, 1898-1908/09", London, 1947, p.452. and also by Ernie Bayly and Michæl S. Kinnear in their "A Discography of recordings produced by the International Zonophone Company and associated companies in Europe and the Americas, 1901-1903".
