Curious 
He was registered at birth as Mozart Guarnieri, but when he began a musical career, he decided his first name was too pretentious and subject to puns. Thus he adopted his mother's maiden name Camargo as a middle name, and thenceforth signed himself M. Camargo Guarnieri. In 1948, he legally changed his name to Mozart Camargo Guarnieri, but continued to sign only the initial of his first name. One of his brothers was named Rossine, a Portuguese misspelling of Rossini Guarnieri, another one Verdi Guarnieri.

Phonograph Cylinders
This playlist contains the 1888 phonograph recording of Sir Arthur Sullivan's (1842-1900) speech for Thomas Edison, along with the 1888 recording of Sullivan's "The Lost Chord": the oldest "listenable" musical recording in existence. There are also some 1888 recordings from Crystal Palace of Handel's oratorio, Israel in Egypt, which are the first existing recordings we have of music at all - albeit hard to hear. Click Here
