German Soprano Elisabeth Rethberg ~ Ave Maria (1924)

German soprano Elisabeth Rethberg (1894-1976) / Ave Maria (Schubert) / Max Rosen - violinist Recorded: 1924 -- The German soprano Elisabeth Rethberg (September 22, 1894 - June 6, 1976) was an opera singer of international repute active from the period of the First World War through to the early 1940s. Some hailed her as the greatest soprano of her day. (Her chief contemporary rival at the New York Metropolitan Opera was the Italian-American soprano Rosa Ponselle, who possessed a bigger and darker-hued voice.) While she did not break any new ground dramatically or vocally, Rethberg was just as much at home singing in Italian or German. She employed her pure, stunningly beautiful and good-sized lyric voice with such focus that she never seems obscured in old recordings by either loud orchestras or larger-voiced partners. She slotted ideally into delicate Mozartian roles yet was perhaps the greatest Amelia in Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschera that the Metropolitan Opera has ever known. Her singing of the more lyrical Wagnerian soprano parts such as Sieglinde, Eva, Elsa and Elisabeth was unsurpassed in its day and probably since. Rethberg was born Elisabeth Sättler in Schwarzenberg. She studied at Dresden's conservatory with Otto Watrin and made her operatic debut in that German city in the operetta Zigeunerbaron by Johann Strauss in 1915. Rethberg sang with the Dresden Opera until 1922. In that year, she made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Aida in Giuseppe Verdi's opera of that name. She moved to the USA and remained with the Metropolitan for 20 seasons, singing some 30 roles on stage and in the recording studio opposite such famous tenor colleagues as Beniamino Gigli, Giovanni Martinelli and Giacomo Lauri-Volpi. She also was engaged by London's Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where she sang in 1925 and in 1934-1939. The Salzburg Festival in Austria heard her too, as did audiences in Milan and elsewhere in Europe. Rethberg returned often to Dresden where, in 1928, she created the title role in Strauss's Die ägyptische Helena. The brilliantly dynamic if dictatorial Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini was a particular admirer of Rethberg's vocal talent. During the latter-half of the 1930s Rethberg's voice lost its bloom due to the repeated singing of Aida and other heavy roles. She retired from the stage in 1942. Yet even at her least impressive (for example, in a 1942 recording of Verdi's Otello), she remained a well-schooled singer and a classy reminder of the Metropolitan Opera's great period during the 1920s and early '30s, when her powers were at their peak. In her magnificent prime, Rethberg was remarkable for the combination of a seemingly delicate, feminine sound with a capacity for great vocal intensity, to which she added impressive breath control and dynamic light and shade (from piano to forte notes). She made many splendid recordings of arias and ensemble pieces in Germany and the United States between 1921 and the outbreak of the Second World War. Many of these are available on modern CD transfers. The most fascinating records of her art, however, may be the live Met recordings that capture her (admittedly, past her zenith) in complete operas by Mozart, Verdi and Wagner. These recordings are somewhat difficult to obtain in America because the Met forbids their sale in the United States owing to royalty concerns. They include Mozart's Marriage of Figaro and Verdi's Il Trovatore, Un Ballo in Maschera, Simon Boccanegra and Otello. Rethberg was married to the Russian-born Met comprimario singer George Cehanovsky (1892-1986). She died in Yorktown Heights, New York in 1976 at the age of 81.

Funny Yodeling Videos - Kerry Christensen - yodeler yodelers yodel

Kerry Christensen is not your typical yodeler. His concerts and events this year will take him to as many as 23 US states and two or three countries internationally. Kerry spent two years in the country of Austria right out of high school. There he became interested in the Alpine yodeling art. After mastering this difficult medium he was asked in l983 to move his six member family to Orlando, Florida and use his yodeling skills at Walt Disney World's Epcot Center. He performed there for almost seven years until 1990. Today Kerry performs at all kinds of state fairs, corporate events, festivals, and community concerts. He recently lent his unique classical yodeling talent to a full-length Disney animated feature called "Home on the Range." Kerry is perhaps the only full-time yodeler in the world that specializes in all styles of yodeling. He can be strictly Alpine, or he can put on his Stetson hat and do an all-cowboy yodeling show. However, many of Kerry's fans say that their favorite show is when Kerry mixes up the styles. You will hear cowboy, Alpine, Cajun, Latin, Jewish, Hawaiian, jazz, classical, and his always popular mouth trumpet and humorous chicken yodeling renditions.

Yodeling Lesson 2 With Bonnie

Howdy yodel folks! I've finally gotten around to making a new yodel lesson. In this lesson I'm teaching how to do the "tag" yodel I do at the end of a yodel resolving from the 5 chord to the 1 chord, and then after that I discuss some ways to help your voice break. If you watched the first one but are having trouble, maybe these tips will help. Here are the "words" LAY ee ODLE OH oh AY ee dee OH LAY ee ODLE OH wee deee If you haven't watched the first one, watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6s6NM5sYQs Thanks to all who have contributed by means of comments, PMs, and the one email from someone who somehow figured out what my email address was :) If you want to see more of these, please leave a comment saying so. It'll be very encouraging me when I'm thinking about making the next one. Also feel free to let me know what type of yodel stuff you'd like to hear about.
