Arthur Endres Kraeckmann was born in Chicago on 28 November 1893. He won a scholarship to study at the American Conservatory in Fontainbleau for the summer of 1921, yet Kraeckmann remained in France. He studied with no less than Jean De Reszke and Reynaldo Hahn, and established himself (under the name of Arthur Endrèze) as one of the great "French" baritones. Endrèze rarely visited the United States, and his career was almost entirely in France. Endrèze returned to Chicago in 1974, where he died less than a year later. The recorded output of Arthur Endrèze is historically important and has never been issued in its entirety. Endrèze is firmly footed in the French style of singing, an art that is lost today.
