Friedrich Schorr, Wagnerian baritone 1888-1953
Presented by Professor Colin Mackerras
Friedrich Schorr (1888-1953) was arguably the greatest of all Wagnerian bass-baritones, especially noted for his portrayal of Hans Sachs in Die Meistersinger and Wotan in Der Ring des Niebelungen.
This talk will discuss his life and contribution to Wagnerian opera history. It will also include and comment on some major examples of his singing.
