Description

A stunning selection of popular song, operetta, and light classical favourites from, arguably, the greatest lyric tenor of all time, Richard Tauber (1891-1948).

Featuring 66 recordings over 3 discs, this is one of the most comprehensive Richard Tauber collections ever released. Featured favourites include You Are My Heart's Delight; Girls Were Made To Love And Kiss; One Day When We Were Young; We'll Gather Lilacs; Lover Come Back To Me; O Maiden, My Maiden; Nessun Dorma; Pedro the Fisherman; On With The Motley; Night And Day; In The Still Of The Night; and many more...

Richard Tauber was one of the greatest singers of all-time, regarded perhaps second only to Caruso. Legendary soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf spoke for millions when she called him "the greatest tenor I had the fortune to hear". Adept at both opera and popular song, Tauber was renowned as the quintessential Viennese operetta tenor who, like Kathleen Ferrier and Maria Callas, has enormous 'crossover' appeal even to this day.
