Notes and Editorial Reviews
Heinrich Rehkemper was born in Westphalia and originally trained as a machine tool operator, but after his remarkably beautiful voice was discovered, he commenced his studies at the conservatories in Hagen and Dusseldorf. Later he continued his studies at the Music Academy in Munich. Heinrich Rehkemper was a splendid, uncomplicated artist. He was a member of a generation of singers whose traits did not include the hyper-sensitivity of current singers. It was rather his spiritual balance that remained unforgettable and incomparable. His talent was delineated by the laws of a humanistic epoch. He did not forgo the heartfelt tones of vocal expression - on the contrary, they were a preeminent feature of his artistry. As the critic Max Graf once put it, "for him the greatness and simplicity of art became a primary aspect, not only its idealistic aspects but also the old tradition, the unbroken, mental strength and, ultimately, the genuine sincerity, which is the fulcrum of spiritual training, unsullied by the mercantile spirit of a materialistic era".
