Max Lichtegg belongs to the large number of artists who enjoyed enormous recognition and success during WWII and into the 50s and 60s but today is mainly known only to record collectors.
Lichtegg was, in his prime, without doubt the most popular tenor in Switzerland. His beautiful lyrical voice had a very special timbre, paired with strikingly good looks, it elicited in his audiences an enthusiasm that often bordered on hysteria! That his present day fame doesn't measure up to his erstwhile reputation is quite likely due to the fact that the record companies weren't interested in transferring his recordings to present-day media.
Over this 4-CD set, you can explore the many performances he gave with his contemporaries across all sorts of repertoire, making this a valuable addition to the catalogue and offering an insight into this very talented performer.
