Aksel Schiøtz, tenor
This is the first ever complete collection of all the recordings done by the Danish tenor Aksel Schiøtz, from 1933 to 1946. His career as a tenor ended drastically in 1946 when he barely survived a tumor operation which saved his life, but altered his voice. Until his death in 1975 he was a baritone and a much sought after professor and his master classes in the USA gave advice and help to many young singers from around the world. His precious tenor reordings, all done in a very short period of time, contains a vast selection of Danish songs and the yardstick performances of Dichterliebe and Die schöne Müllerin. The Danacord Aksel Schiøtz Collections include not only these famous song cycles but also the arias and oratorio recordings which occupy a special place among collectors.
All transfers were done at the Abbey Road Studios in London by Andrew Walter and each booklet has full texts and translations. Not only the commerial recordings are included but also rare soundtracks from films.
