'Frieda Hempel was among the brightest stars of opera’s golden age, and one of the first singers whose entire career could be documented by recordings. These captured a coloratura voice of great lyric beauty which Hempel used with remarkable intelligence in opera and on the concert stage. She created the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier in both Berlin and New York, where she debuted with Caruso in 1912, and her performances of Mozart and Verdi remain touchstones.
