Re-release of sold-out C502001.
Among those singers who, in the mid-twentieth century, stepped onto the opera stages of the world and into the shoes of the legendary thirties and forties generation of singers, the bass-baritone George London was an exception. His voice, with its inimitable and balanced timbre in all registers, found virtually no comparison. London was a true bass-baritone whose voice, even in extreme reaches, could maintain its dark tone thanks to a conscious style and articulation and a wide-ranging expressive ability.
His international career was brought to an abrupt and all too early end in the 1960s. During an operation one of his vocal chords was damaged and his voice never regained its force and beauty. While in Munich during a tour of Europe, London suffered a stroke from which he never fully recovered. He died in New York in 1985.
The present album with recordings from the Bavarian broadcast archive feature the legendary bass-baritone at the height of his career in the 1950s.
