Believe it or not, before there were “barihunks” there were actual baritones. They were capable of conveying all of the same sex-appeal as their present day counterparts, but they did it with their voices. Eberhard Wächter is a prime example: a singer who mellifluous sound and vocal ease meant that on stage he exuded sensuality even in buffo parts like Dulcamara. (It was a happy coincidence that he was also a handsome man.) This compilation highlights Wächter’s remarkable versatility and features arias and excerpts from Il Barbiere di Siviglia, L'Elisir d'amore, Le Nozze di Figaro, Faust, Don Carlo, Falstaff, Madama Butterfly, Tosca Arabella, Salome, Tannhäuser, Tristan und Isolde, and Parsifal
