About

John McCormack’s reputation as one of the greatest of all tenors remains undimmed. The final volume of this acclaimed series focuses on the sequence of acoustically recorded discs made in late 1924. There are memorable encounters with the great violinist Fritz Kreisler and a span of repertoire that includes Brahms – McCormack was tutored by one of the composer’s favourite interpreters, George Henschel – as well as lighter fare.

This release ends with a series of important alternative takes, including the first ever issue of a second take of 'La Serenata' from Rossini’s Les Soirées Musicales.
