Notes and Editorial Reviews

A delightfully natural and spontaneous style of singing, like Fritz Wunderlich, tenor Rudolf Schock enjoyed a legendary reputation and great popularity. The opera highlights from the 1950's assembled here present French, Italian and German repertoire that shows the great tenor at the height of his vocal powers. Opera in German for the nostalgic - but fascinating for younger opera fans as well!
