Select the style you prefer but be sure it is a Victrola That Victrola Instruments and Victor Records are the world's finest products of their kind is universally admitted. Such things don't just happen-they are achieved. In our case contributing factors are more than twenty-five years of effort concentrated on a single purpose, en thusiastic cooperation of the greatest artists and unequalled facilities for complete manufacture in the largest plant ever devoted to the pro duction of one musical product. Victrola Instruments are better Victor Records are better-used together they are beyond comparison. Leopold Stokowski has brought the playing of the Philadelphia Orchestra to an almost unparalleled degree of perfection-a hundred minds, each one a chosen intellect, in instantaneous response to his own. That so great an achievement can be adequately perpetuated by any process of recording is in itself a triumph of science and of art, in proof of which we recommend the following records: Double-faced Carmen-Prelude to Act I March of the Caucasian Chief 796 $1.50 Blue Danube Waltz623 2.00 Invitation to the Waltz 6237 2.00 STOHunarian Rhapsody,No.2 6236 2.00 Victrola No. 50 (Portable) STOKOWSKI Largo from"New World"Symphony $50 Victor Artist Mahogany or oak To compare the art of one country with that of another may prove little, but it is one of the most frequent impulses. Therefore no collection of Victor Records is complete without a number of examples of the art of Albert Coates and the Symphony r Orchestra, which represent at their best the efforts of a great orchestra playing within the influence of European taste. Among the sixteen selections we suggest: Double-faced Symphony in A Major, No. 7- D 1st Movement, Part 1 (Beethoven) 55165 $1.50 Symphony in A Major, No. 7- S1st Movement, Part 2 U Symphony in A Major, No. 7- Victrola No. 240 A© .. 2nd Movement, Part 1 $125 Apeda Symphony in A Major, No. 7- 55166 1.50 Mahogany, oak COATES 2nd Movement, Part 2 or walnut Symphony in A Major, No. 7 Victor Artist 3rd Movement 55174 1.50 Symphony in A Major, No. 7 4th Movement The greatness of William Mengelberg lies in the sincerity, the beauty, and depth of his interpre tations. He directs an organization infinitely flexible, with unbounded opportunities for self-revelation. The records of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra under his baton speak as nothing else can for his genius, and nowhere in the list of recorded works is this more evident than in Double-faced ©Bain l Symphonic Pathetique News (2nd Movement) 6374 $2.00 Service Symphonie Pathetique (Finale) ME Les Preludes-Part (Liszt) 6225 2.00 Victrola No. 405 MENGELBERG Les Preludes-Part II 6225 2.00 Walnut, $250; Les Preludes-Part III electric, $290 Victor Artist Le Prludes-Part IV 6373 2.00 electric, There is but one Victrola and that is made by the r Victor Company-look for these Victor trade marks s MASTS O T k M h o TRADE MARK.
