Notes and Editorial Reviews

The legendary tenor voice of Richard Tauber makes its third appearance on the Dutton label with 'Pardon, Madame'. He was a versatile singer with a voice once described as one 'to die for', whose talents enabled him to straddle with ease the worlds of operetta and heavier operatic repertoire. This compilation, however, focuses on material drawn from operettas by several composers who specialized in that area. Tauber brings to life melodies by Oscar Strauss, including those taken from Ein Waltzertraum (1907) and Marietta (1928); Robert Stolz (Alles aus Liebe, 1927, Liebeskommando, 1931 and Venus in Seide, 1932); Emmerich Kálmán (Die Zirkusprinzesin, 1926 & Die Herzogin von Chicago, 1928); Paul Abraham (Viktoria und Ihr Husar, 1930 & Blume von Read more Hawaii, 1931); and Jaromir Weinberger (Frühlinsstürme, 1932). The charming melodies from these and other works are interpreted with the precision, artistry and sheer musicality for which this great tenor was famous. The conductor Bruno Walter put it best when he said of Tauber: 'Whatever he sang was ennobled by his sense of beauty and his musicianship,' qualities much in evidence on this release.
