Historians have uncovered unique phonograph recordings of composer Leoš Janáček’s voice. The recordings were found in the archives of the Ethnological Institute of the Academy of Sciences. They were made in 1912 when Janáček recorded samples of two promising Slovak singers. He himself appears in the recordings giving them directions. The recordings will be digitalized. They appear to be the only preserved recordings of Janáček’s voice.
