Notes & Reviews:

"The outstanding tenors of the 78 era: comprising thirteen episodes, each with a biographical and a musical focus, this two-volume edition features bel canto singers captured on black and white sound film. Backed up with footage, much of which is shown here for the very first time, the individual artists are profiled and their exceptional talents demonstrated in representative recordings. "No other video about opera singers matches the depth and breadth of "The Tenors of the 78 Era", no other was produced so lavishly. [... ] This is a series to enjoy, study and watch repeatedly. Beautifully photographed, it makes a stupendous gift." Stefan Zucker, Belcanto Society"

American Record Guide
This is a most precious treasury of operatic greatness and history. A six-part documentary by Jan Schmidt-Garre (1997) presents six famous (and great) tenors in archival film footage, recordings, and modern commentary. The amount of material presented is staggering and absolutely fascinating.
