Icon: John McCormack - I'll walk beside you: Lieder, Arias, Folksongs and Irish Ballads

Notes & Reviews:

Even in his lifetime, singer John McCormack was synonymous with Ireland. His worldwide success attracted a host of imitator, so that he could be said to have invented the 'Irish tenor'. But a few minutes spent with the unique recordings of the original will quickly put the other in their place. McCormack was among a handful of artist of his time - others were Enrico Carusop, Fritz Kreisler, Amelita Galli-Curci and Segei Rachmaninov - whose records could be found in every middle-class parlor in the civilized world. Even fellow singers looked up to him as a paragon of vocal technique and enunciation. Above all, he was a master communicator who could touch listeners' hearts with his sincerity in the simplest of ballads. Although his recitals were usually packed with thousands of adoring fans, through his records he reached out to countless millions in the stats of middle America, the outback of Australia or the hinterland of Africa who would never hear him in person. This 4-CD set features hi celebrated operatic performances.

The ICON series returns to pays homage to some of the greatest recording artists with these elegantly-packaged multi-CD sets devoted to their finest recordings. The next installment in the series offers five titles which showcase the artistry of Arturo Toscanini, Boris Christoff, Brigitte Fassbaender, Constantin Silvestri, and John McCormack.
