Studio of Hermann Leiser in Berlin.
From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).
German baritone Fritz Feinhals portrayed Wagnerian roles throughout his career, performing in Vienna, Paris, New York, and London. He created the role of Borromeo in Pfitzner's opera Palestrina (1917).
The Honig family emigrated from Vienna to England in September of 1938 and then to the United States in 1939. The family papers are held at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
"Horne had a voice of extraordinary range, rich and tangy in timbre, with a stentorian chest register and an exciting top... In concert she once achieved the feat of singing in a single programme Rossini arias and Brünnhilde's Immolation Scene, proof of her exceptional versatility. Throughout her lengthy career she was an admired recitalist, singing lieder, mélodies, and Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.
