SPOTLIGHT ON

La mia collezione preziosa è la prova evidente che qualsiasi cosa può essere un tesoro. L'aspetto più importante per me non è rappresentato dal valore degli articoli, ma dalla gioia che questi mi hanno donato negli anni.

My precious collection is clear evidence that anything can be a treasure. The most important aspect for me is not represented by the value of the articles, but by the joy that these have given me over the years.

DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON (QUASI) MAI VISTI IN ITALIA

Quando iniziai a collezionare dischi, parliamo degli ultimi anni ’60, gli unici mezzi di informazioni discografiche erano le riviste di settore ed i cataloghi. Praticamente tutte le più grandi case discografiche, a fine anno, pubblicavano un esauriente catalogo con le disponibilità dei titoli ‘scelti’ dalle distribuzioni nazionali per soddisfare le esigenze dei clienti di ciascuna nazione. Va da sé che non tutti i titoli pubblicati da una casa discografica potevano essere interessanti per il mercato italiano, o francese, tedesco e inglese. 

 

Attendevo con trepidazione la fine dell’estate perché in ottobre - in Italia - sarebbero ricominciate le scuole (più per la voglia di rivedere gli amici che non per lo studio) e i negozi di dischi si riempivano di depliant e cataloghi con le sospirate ‘sottoscrizioni’ che avrebbero da lì a poco fatto bella mostra nelle vetrine dei negozi per le feste natalizie. Dare la caccia ai cataloghi era quasi più entusiasmante (e difficile) che non cercare i dischi. Ovviamente le riviste di settore, con le loro pagine pubblicitarie, ancor più veicolavano queste informazioni, e - insieme alle recensioni - formavano lo ’zoccolo duro’ del mercato discografico popolare sulla musica classica.

 

Quale sorpresa fu poi quella di scoprire i cataloghi internazionali: gli amici conosciuti grazie ai fitti contatti epistolari tra collezionisti, iniziarono a spedirmi i cataloghi dei loro Paesi e scoprii che quelli che credevo essere cataloghi internazionali non lo erano affatto: nelle prossime settimane mostrerò titoli della DGG che in Italia di fatto non erano mai apparsi, o (forse) arrivavano solo su speciale ordinazione (è il costo lievitava sensibilmente).

DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON (ALMOST) NEVER SEEN IN ITALY

Google translation: When I started collecting records, we are talking about the late 1960s, the only means of recording information were sector magazines and catalogs. Virtually all the major record companies, at the end of the year, published a comprehensive catalog with the availability of titles 'chosen' by national distributions to meet the needs of customers in each country. It goes without saying that not all the titles published by a record company could be interesting for the Italian market, or French, German and English.

 

I looked forward to the end of summer with trepidation because in October (in Italy) the schools would restart (more for the desire to see friends again than for the study) and the record shops were filled with brochures and catalogs with the long-awaited 'subscriptions' that would shortly be shown in shop windows for the Christmas holidays. Hunting catalogs was almost more exciting (and difficult) than searching for records. Obviously the music magazines, with their advertising pages, even more conveyed this information, and - together with the reviews - formed the 'hard core' of the popular record market on classical music.

 

What a surprise it was then to discover the international catalogs: the friends I met thanks to the close correspondence between collectors, began to send me the catalogs of their countries and I discovered that what I believed to be international catalogs were not at all: in the coming weeks I will show titles of the DGG that in fact had never appeared in Italy, or (perhaps) only arrived on special order (and the cost increased significantly).
