Arnold Schoenberg in London - the 1900's

from Arnold Schoenberg Letters, page 283:

More about the records. In this performance, the microphone was used by the singers, and by this the singers are so loud that they cover the orchestra. You don’t hear the orchestra almost for the whole performance. In a well-balanced performance you will hear both the orchestra and the singers.
