Heinrich Schlusnus 1919-1925

Heinrich Schlusnus was one of the most celebrated German baritones of his era. Indeed, as part of the legendary Berlin State Opera ensemble of the inter-war years he was regarded by many as the outstanding Verdi baritone of his generation; a reputation confirmed on this disc in recordings of arias from Il Trovatore, Rigoletto and Otello.

Review "Although generally overlooked Heinrich Schlusnus is without doubt one of the finest baritones of his time. I first became aware of him from an old 78rpm record my Father possessed. I was taken by the richness and "musicality" in his voice. This CD comprising his early operatic repertoire provides evidence and confirmation of how good he was. I can therefore strongly recommend this CD to all lovers of good singing." - Mr. Chistopher E. Powell
