German-British 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.

She participated in the film Elisabeth Schwarzkopf: A Self Portrait by Gerald Caillat, made for television in 1995, and released by EMI Classics in 1997.

The soprano died in her sleep during the night of 2–3 August 2006 at her home in Schruns, Vorarlberg, Austria, aged 90.

Sy Scholfield cites an account of her birth written by her father: "Der 9. Dezember 1915 Nachmittag ca. 4h wurde unsere Elisabeth geboren, in Jarotschin, Breslauerstr. 7, im 2. Stock, in dem grossen Schlafzimmer, das nach der Strasse zu lag..." Translation: 'On 9 December 1915 at four o'clock in the afternoon our Elisabeth was born in Jarotschin, Breslauerstr. 7, 2nd floor, in the large bedroom, which faced the road...' (The account is quoted from the newsletter of Schubertiade Schwarzenberg/Hohenems, December 2015) [1].
