Lotte Schoene

Post by Geoff »

We have a great deal to thank youtube for, for me it saves me from rummaging through my record collection. I've not beaten Youtube yet but one day, I might ! Here is a gem of an early recording; Lotte Schoene and 'Je suis Titania' ,, to my mind only bettered by the 50 odd years later recording by the late Beverley Sills, who was 50 years old at the time Sills, a particular favourite of mine, made other recordings of this aria not on Youtube which are superior, but who is quibbling ? Not me !.

Thank you for mentioning Lotte SChöne. - One of my BIG loves.

A firm and lovely voice with a great deal of charm and a great singer!

So many fine recordings - actually have not heard yet a single bad one.
Among my favourites are:

with the great Willi Domgraf-Fassbaender:

also most charming in operetta.
