Notes & Reviews:

Born Kurt Schumacher, Marcel Cordes spent the war years in a French prisoner-of-war camp. He resumed his singing career in 1948 and changed vocal roles from a tenor to baritone. In the 1950s and 60s, Cordes was considered the finest "Italian" baritone in the German-speaking world. He contracted a serious ear condition in 1965 that eventually led to complete deafness, which ended his singing career.
