“Ludwig Suthaus was one of the most important heldentenors in the 1930-51 era. His baritone-based voice was one of great power coupled with sensitivity to text and music. He was able to scale his operatic voice down to the simplicity of a lieder recital. He could produce a warmth of color with ease. Brilliant high notes were also part of his vocal arsenal….A very different aspect of Suthaus’ art is heard in a lieder recital from the Moscow conservatory, 12 October, 1955….For anyone who knows Suthaus’ singing from his Wagner recordings…this recital will be a revelation. Not only is the voice scaled down to quite delicate, but an amazing reading of the text informs each of the selections.”
