The Golden Voice of Richard Tauber
Richard Tauber was the world’s greatest lyric tenor and one of the greatest singers of all time. Here in one of the most comprehensive Tauber collections ever Memory Lane presents a stunning 3 CD collection of 70 popular songs, operetta and light classical favourites.
Adept with both opera and popular songs, Richard Tauber was renowned as the quintessential Viennese operetta tenor and like Ferrier and Callas, he had enormous ‘crossover’ appeal. Tauber’s exceptional voice could reach and extend high notes in a manner that was almost ethereal. Just as important, he was a personality with a big heart and an impeccably dapper image characterised by the ever-present top hat, monocle and opera cloak.
