CRITIC REVIEW:

"This Macedonian-born singer was the principal baritone at the Stuttgart Opera for many years. The war interfered with his career to some extent; the Vienna opera house was closed from 1940, and that’s why he went to Stuttgart. He remained there until 1963, with rare forays to Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco and Chicago….Two rarely heard Rachmaninoff and two Gretchaninoff songs show off his considerable capabilities in lieder…."
