Band 13

Delibes: Coppélia: Act I: No. 3, Mazurka

Metropolitan Opera Orchestra--Nahan Franko

February 12, 17, 20 (matinee) or 22, 1904

[Slip; Glackens 18: no date. The Met Ballet danced Coppélia four times during February 1904, following various operatic performances; the orchestra's concertmaster, Nahan Franko, was on the podium. (An unspecified "Danse" from the ballet was also played under Phillippe Flon at the concert of February 8, 1903, but there is no other evidence of Mapleson recording Sunday evening concerts during that season.) On the original cylinder, the Coppélia excerpt follows the conclusion of the Wagner Kaisermarsch, see Side 10/Band 11.]

The recording begins after the introduction to the Mazurka, at measure 14, and ends at measure 43; all repeats are taken.
