The history of «Intona-Record» is shrouded with mystery. According to the official paper of «Gramophone Co.» about copyright infringements , «Intona-Record» was the predecessor of the famous «Syrena-Record» company – one of the biggest legal Russian labels. This standpoint for many years prevailed among Russian researchers. However, the Western researchers, for instance the author of “Syrena Record–Poland’s first recording company” book Tomasz Lerski, reckoned that the predecessor of «Syrena-Record» was «Ideal» Company. His conclusion was based on the information acquired from the descendants  of the founder of «Syrena-Record» Company Julius Feigenbaum. The reconciliation of two seemingly incompatible positions became possible after discovering the first actual «Intona-Record» record. It’s instantly became obvious that “Intona-Record” was nothing else, but one of the Labels of «Ideal» Company – the trademark of the later one is located on the label just under its name! Yet, the background of this «Ideal» is still unknown. It looks like there were several independent companies with this name. As reference mark the year of «Intona-Record» creation can be used that according to Tomasz Lerski  was 1904. It’s interesting that according to Alexander Tikhonov , the «Intona-Record» catalog consisted of 302 records, 266 of those were pirated from the «Gramophone Co.».
