Many years ago, when a particularly dull recording Read more of a neglected 19th-century French opera was going the review rounds, the baritone featured in the secondary lead was lauded to the critical skies. Now I have nothing against the gentleman in question. He was an extremely reliable singer, with a very smooth delivery. He possessed the traditional French virtues of an unpressurized tone and a very forward enunciation. But the voice itself was small and ordinary, and it was impossible to imagine him in some of the greater baritone roles of the French repertoire that had for the most part fallen by the wayside in such operas as Thaïs, Hérodiade, Hamlet, Guillaume Tell, La favorite, Sigurd, Le Roi de Lahore , and Marouf . For that kind of voice one must turn to a time when those operas were still being performed with some regularity, and singers capable of surmounting their difficulties with ease were treasured.


It’s safe to say that, for many collectors of vintage opera, Arthur Endrèze (1893–1975) would be the first name to come to mind. His credentials were impeccable: training first with Jean de Reszke, and then, through de Reszke’s introduction, with Reynaldo Hahn. So perfect was his style in this music—most likely thanks to Hahn—that it’s often forgotten he was in fact born in Chicago. (His name was originally Arthur Endres Kraeckmann. The last name had to go when he ventured on the French stage, so he used a French rendering of his middle name, which came from his mother’s Alsatian side of the family.) Walter Damrosch heard Endrèze at a benefit concert, leading to the latter’s first serious study of music, at the late age of 27. It was Hahn who arranged and directed Endrèze’s semi-professional debut at the Nice Opera in 1924, where he took the eponymous role in Don Giovanni . The following year he appeared in a professional production of Carmen.


Within three years Endrèze made his Opéra-Comique debut in Le Roi d’Ys , and less than a year after that, as Valentin at the Paris Opéra. By 1931 he had been offered, and learned, more than 25 roles. Endrèze was being fast-tracked, and both the French Odeon and Pathé record companies were very much aware of that fact. Beginning in 1929 and continuing for nearly a decade, they recorded the baritone in a wide variety of operatic roles and songs. After that time he continued singing, and to great applause in the opera house, but the bulk of his recording days were over. Today, the situation is reversed: the voice is stilled, the costumes, autographed photos, and personal mementos dispersed. What remains are the records, vivid reminders of an extraordinary singer whose like has not yet reappeared.


If you come upon an online or physical store that lets you hear excerpts of this album, start with two pieces from 1936: Mefistopheles’s solos from Faust . You’ll notice at once the perfectly even sound throughout the voice’s range, and its unusually high timbre—for Endrèze was a French baritone with a typically tenor-like, well-supported top. What follows are readings remarkable for their absolutely clear and accurate enunciation of the text, and their careful attention to dynamics. The details impress as much for character as they do for musicianship: note the way the repeat of “Nentendez-vous pas” in the Serenade fades slightly at the end of the line, and the softened, poisonous repeat of “Ainsi ton gallant tappelle.” Instead of the broad, sneering approach of some singers, we get a subtle parody of the galant serenader, one who is all sighs and whispers. Or again, in the more extroverted “Song of the Golden Calf,” he effortlessly, gloriously punches home “le bal” in both verses, and appropriately enough adds a metal edge to his voice on the words, “Où brille lardent metál.” It’s true Parisians wouldn’t have seen this Mefistofele on stage, since the role was intended for a bass, but these recordings give an excellent idea of why Endrèze was the leading baritone at the Paris Opéra for almost two decades.


The other recordings give us fascinating glimpses of the singer in a variety of roles. There are numerous excerpts from Cavalleria Rusticana in French from 1933, opposite Cernay and Micheletti, with Endrèze bright as sharpened steel rather than dark and menacing like so many Italian baritones. From the year before we have a superb Scarpia in French Odeon’s Tosca , with Vallin and Mazzei. He’s one of the best Iagos on disc, in (sadly) just three excerpts—his two solos, and “Si pel ciel.” René Verdière is a careless Otello, sloppy with phrase endings, vowels, and breath support, but never Endrèze; and his “Eri tu” from Un ballo is a thing of glory, poised yet thoroughly involved. We don’t get to hear his Telramund, unfortunately, but we do have magnificent excerpts in French of his Wolfram von Eschenbach, Dutchman, and especially Wotan’s monologue at the end of Die Walküre . Many now forgotten or barely remembered operas offer him prime material, as well: Guercoeur, Le Roi Arthus, Thaïs, Sigurd, Patrie, Messaline . The luminous warmth of his voice is very much present in all his recordings of songs with piano accompaniment, though at times he sounds a bit nervous in these, the phrasing overly schematic and the top slightly insecure—which is curious, since one of his two most important teachers, Hahn, was an expert in this repertoire who always spoke well of his former pupil.


Marston Records labels this The Complete Arthur Endrèze , and that’s what we get. There are some late broadcast selections, a few that sound like they could have been made in the 1950s when the baritone was already in his 60s. (The vibrato has lost its tautness, but everything else is still there.) I wouldn’t give up a minute of it. This is a treasure trove of material for anyone who appreciates Endrèze, or the late 19th-century French repertoire, or simply great singing.


Ward Marston’s transfers manage the impossible, removing virtually all hiss, grit, and scratchiness, while bringing the voice forward in all its brilliance. My only comparisons are with some older, long deleted LPs and an inferior CD on Malibran 157, but I detect no loss of treble in whatever filtering has been applied. With a long essay on Endrèze, this release is truly welcome indeed.

 The Greatest French baritone of his time June 13, 2013 By Shaun Greenleaf (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "Arthur Endreze receives, finally, his due in this magnificent five disc set. The splendid aria recordings glisten in Ward Marston's impeccable restorations, including extended excerpts from Cavalleria, with Germaine Cernay and Tosca with Ninon Vallin. The set included every known recording of this unique artist, an American from Chicago who became one of Jean de Reszke's last pupils and who was sponsored by Reynaldo Hahn. The accompanying booklet is a model of documentation, with many beautiful photographs and an authoritative text(English only). Vocal collectors and admirers of the now-lost French style can rejoice in this near-perfect set." Report Abuse
