Biography

German singer with the Berlin City Opera after her debut in 1938. She won international fame after World War II with her exquisite and faultless voice, graced with a precise pitch and pure, narrow vibrato. She had impeccable style for roles by Mozart and Strauss.

Schwarzkopf had to join the Nazi party during the war in order to continue singing and hence was blacklisted after the war until being exonerated early in 1947.

That same year she moved to London. She married Walter Legge in 1953, a record producer who became her Svengali; she was widowed in 1979.

The soprano died on August 3, 2006 at age 90 at her home in Schruns, Austria.
