Notes and Editorial Reviews

Miliza Korjus was one of the most astounding coloratura sopranos in the verifiable history of singing. Her recordings are generally considered as being in the top league and, on the basis of these recordings, she is often equated with those paragons of vocal artistry: Tetrazzini, Barrientos, Hempel and Galli-Curci. It should not be forgotten, however, that Miliza Korjus had virtually no stage career and that her fame rests fairly and squarely on concert and recording activities. In the early 1930s she was deemed a sensation - a second Jenny Lind. She enjoyed equal acclaim during her concert tours in the United States but her career lacked the very continuity that might justify comparison with world-class sopranos. Korjus' star waxed and Read more waned with unusual rapidity and, because virtually all biographical details have, even now, been kept secret, numerous legends have arisen around her name - no doubt an international move by her manager to enhance her reputation. But, never forget, she was a virtuoso coloratura singer. Apart from the crystalline beauty of tone, the stupendous flexibility and staccato technique were magnificent. Actually, her voice was fairly large and powerful and she was deemed almost the perfect coloratura singer, especially admired as the ideal interpreter of the Queen of the Night. Read less
