CRITIC REVIEWS:

"Paul Knüpfer spent most of his career at the Berlin Imperial Opera where he was a noted buffo bass. He sang Baron Ochs in the Berlin premiere of Der Rosenkavalier. He often performed with his wife, soprano Maria Knüpfer-Egli."

- Ned Ludd



“[Truesound] transfers have been an absolute revelation to me….Amazingly, Christian Zwarg has managed to unlock the sound of these recordings in such a way as to present [voices] such as I have never heard before. Here the sound has a sheen and glow which is quite beautiful. It is as if an old masterpiece painting has been cleaned and restored, allowing rays of brilliant light to emerge….”
