Sound Recordings

The Collection of Sound Recordings currently comprises almost 4,000 objects. Besides vinyl records, which are still common today, the collection contains more than a thousand shellac records and 148 Edison cylinders from the early days of sound recording.

It features a broad range of content. Focal points include historical voice recordings covering different aspects of German history, but also historically significant music recordings that reflect the sentiments of the times. Early phonetic speech and sound recordings made by the linguist and recording pioneer Wilhelm Doegen occupy a special place; his complete "sound archive" is in the German Broadcasting Archive.

The collection continues to be expanded, primarily through bestowals.
