The 1st of October is the International Music Day
The International Music Day was established in 1973 on the initiative of the International Music Council (IMC) under UNESCO, and since that time it is celebrated all over the world.
We all realize the uniting power of music. Music language is clear to everybody. Music can bring together people, whole nations, and different cultures, enrich people spiritually.
Self-playing music instruments and mechanical rarities, such as music boxes, organs, orchestrions, barrel organs, player pianos, gramophones and phonographs, accordions and automata comprise the heart of the Museum Collection. This circumstance affords a chance to plunge into the world of music and rare sound. Almost all types of audio media of the past are represented in our Museum, including paper music rolls and cardboard book-music, phonograph wax cylinders, gramophone records dated the beginning of the 20th century and made of shellac, perforated metal and cardboard discs and relatively contemporary vinyl records.
The whole variety of the music palette is presented in our Sound library. In the bustle of everyday life, we rarely think of the ordinary things. The International Music Day is a wonderful occasion to celebrate and immerse in the wonderful world of music - beautiful, deep and exciting!
