Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hardly a dramatic tenor in the history of Bayreuth's Festival combined so ideally all qualities which are required of a singing actor like Gotthelf Pistor did; during his relatively short career he was considered an ideal Wagner singer in the roles of Siegfried, Siegmund and Tristan whose voice, outward appearance and acting corresponded to what Wagner wished for his "singing actors." One of the strangest tenors in the history of the Bayreuth Festival was the singer of Tannhauser in the years of 1930/31, Sigismund Pilinszky. The scarce sound documents of this singer hardly give a satisfying picture of his art and the Tannhauser recording from Bayreuth was made at a time when he found himself in the middle of a vocal crisis from which he Read more recovered only with great difficulty. During the relatively short time of his artistic prime Pilinszky indeed must have been a highly interesting alternative to usually, both physically and vocally, "heavy-weight" Wagner-tenors.
