Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...The versatile tenor Rudolf Schock (1915-86)... manages everything from Mozart’s lyric roles to Wagner’s Lohengrin and Walther von Stolzing with impressive conviction. He also proves an idiomatic exponent of some operetta classics, and ventures a creditable account of the Cherry Duet from Mascagni’s L’amico Fritz with the vibrant-toned Joan Hammond..."
