Notes & Reviews:

The American singer Claramae Turner was born as Claramae Haas in 1920. Her contralto voice was naturally opulent and had what one critic called a "black velvet" sound. Trained in San Francisco, she began her career in the chorus of the San Francisco Opera. Hired to do radio broadcasts three times a week, she was "discovered" by her employer at the San Francisco Opera who heard a program, pulled her out of the chorus and engaged her as a soloist with the company. She debuted at the Met in 1946 and was there until 1950 when Rudolf Bing became manager and did not extend her contract. She had an active career in film as well and the song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" was written for her in 1954.
