Notes and Editorial Reviews
Although he only enjoyed a short career, he died at the age of forty-five, the name Leo Schutzendorf still is very much alive in the music world today. In the world premiere of Wozzeck on December 14, 1925, he sang the title role. Albert Einstein wrote about him in the Berliner Tagblatt: "He was a singer who was obsessed by the stage. At his best when he was the center of attention, one could still not overlook him even if he was singing a small role in a remote part of the stage. His Wozzeck was gripping in its bluntness, a miracle of precision of inflected speech - equal to the greatest representatives of this role on the theater stage. His Alberich and Klingsor were highly unconventional but full of pungent characterization. His Figaro was a cheerful but dangerous fellow, superior to every aristocratic opponent. The power of his voice, which was never limited to simply mere belcanto singing was overwhelming as was his dramatic emphasis. Equally worthy of the highest praise were the roles he sang in operetta. He was the most mischievous of all rascals in Fra Diavolo, the most pleasant of all devils in Schwanda. Wherever he appeared, he filled the stage with overpowering tumult. He had a way of carrying along the most uninspired colleagues on stage and thrilling the most indifferent public." 717281891875 Preiser 89187 VARIOUS Legendary Voices - Giovanni Inghilleri "Giovanni Inghilleri, baritone
