Notes & Reviews:

For Herbert von Karajan, Kollo was the ideal Wagner singer. But Rene Kollo didn't only shine as a heroic tenor. He also possessed immense versatility, reaching a large audience both as an expressive actor on the opera stage, and with his concert and television appearances and in his roles in operetta films. And for all these different activates he never forsook his credibility as a "serious" singer. This Electrola recital with Kollo features Christian Thielemann on the rostrum - still at the outset of his career in 1992, but in the meantime one of the leading conductors of Wagner and Strauss.

The Electrola Collection is a series from EMI Classics that celebrates the historic record label, Electrola. Electrola was part of the EMI Classics unit in Germany best known for their rich catalog, masterful artists and the iconic gramophone trademark. This second edition features eleven captivating titles including Otto Nicolai's The Merry Wives of Windsor, Joseph Haydn's The Creation and Rene Kollo sings Wagner and Strauss.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2013
Before Jonas Kaufmann there was Rene Kollo. Try the gravitas and limitless breath-control of his 'Dnnkt dich das?' from Tristan.
