Robert Leonhardt: A Master of German Songs

A Master of German Songs,

at home everywhere where the German song is cherished by the large German-speaking community of Columbia—thus, Robert Leonhardt is among of the beloved Metropolitan Opera Stars, who sing exclusively for the Columbia Graphophone Co. The lively spirit of his hometown of Vienna echoes from the perfect technical recordings. The brilliant baritone—a well-known master of “bel canto”—has been celebrated in Vienna, Berlin and Paris, and continues to be celebrated here. His triumphs find tremendous resonance in German households throughout America.

    If you love the Rhine and its wine, then Leonhardt’s “Vom Rhein der Wein” will fill you with marvel. Feel free to preview these recordings at any Columbia retailer. Before your eyes, the sunny current of the Rhine will stream passed, the magical spirit of the blessed Rheinland will sweep you away, and you will thank the exceptional artists for the gift which they conjured up for you on a Columbia record!

    Other records that will allow you to bring home Leonhardt’s wonderful art may be found listed below.
