Original recordings 1926-1929 of a great German soprano, Meta Seinemeyer. Sadly ignored following her premature death, Seinemeyer was a stunning artist who was compared to both Lotte Lehmann and Rosa Ponselle. Famed record producer Walter Legge noted that she was unique in being a German singer with an Italian sound ? even when, as here, singing in German!
More Extraordinary Examples of Seinemeyer's Art

"If the earth's future was held hostage by opera-loving aliens, Seinemeyer recordings might be the best choice to plead for our continued existence. Great opera sopranos touch the soul with a special poignancy, and Seinemeyer seems to display the very essence of this communicative gift.
From the very first cut on the CD, Puccini's Vissi d'arte from Tosca,we know we're hearing an unforgettable artist. Of the many outstanding opera stars of the 20's, Seinemeyer may be the most unforgettable. The selections showcase some of her finest recordings, and does so in excellent restorations. An absolute must buy for opera lovers in remarkable transfers that can be enjoyed and appreciated by modern listeners.
Hanssler Classics has issued a number of outstanding releases of radio archives of the conductor Schuricht, they seem to be a company to watch."
