Notes & Reviews:

The recordings of songs presented here, ranging from a Bach cantata excerpt to folk songs, were all made during World War II for the Reichsrundfunk Gesellschaft (German radio system), whose classical music division was headed between 1940 and 1945 by the pianist Michael Raucheisen, Schwarzkopf 's first important mentor (and the husband of Maria Ivogun, Schwarzkopf 's teacher). Raucheisen invited the young soprano, whom he had accompanied in several Lieder recitals in 1941, to take part in his radio project "Lied der Welt" for which such famous vocal artists of the time as Peter Anders, Erna Berger, Anton Dermota, Hans Hotter, Frieda Leider, Tiana Lemnitz, Julius Patzak, Elisabeth Rethberg, Heinrich Schlusnus, and numerous others recorded more than a thousand songs. Interviewed at length by J.B. Steane for the book Elisabeth Schwarzkopf: a Career on Record, (Alan Sanders and J.B. Steane; Portland, OR, Amadeus Press, 1995), the singer recalled the circumstances under which these wartime recordings were made: much of the repertoire was new to her and she virtually sightread most of the pieces, not even that the performances were being recorded for posterity. Re-hearing these radio recordings more than fifty years later, Schwarzkopf was displeased by the flat pitch of the duets with Lea Piltti, but liked many of the others, "particularly for their natural use of legato" (op. cit., p.58). Indeed, those who complained of Schwarzkopf's later interpretive style as too mannered will find a fresh and less studied approach in these early recordings. And as Schwarzkopf never re-recorded most of the repertoire, we have an additional reason to cherish them.

BBC Music Magazine
In these 1940s recordings of a wide range of repertoire, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's voice sounds soubrettish, with injections of her own inimitable charm.
