Elisabeth Rethberg 1924-1930



During the period between the two World Wars the operatic profession contained few sopranos more widely admired both by the public and the critics than Elisabeth Rethberg. Arturo Toscanini once declared 'She is the greatest soprano in the world'. Rethberg was not the kind of artist around whom musical legends gather however, and yet, as every track on the current disc bears witness, she was vocally, musically and stylistically, an artist of the highest calibre.
