“Viennese bass-baritone Jaro Prohaska was a staple of the German operatic stage from 1920 to 1950. For 12 seasons he appeared at the Bayreuth Festival, and for 20 in the Berlin opera houses. While his voice was impressively large, he adopted a very different style of singing from his contemporaries. Instead of concentrating on sheer volume, which could be limited in flexibility, Prohaska let his powerful voice flow, controlled but relaxed, subtle in its dramatic interpretations – an amazing combination of strength and refinement.”
