Compilation: Gladys Kuctha - Arias and excerpts from Macbeth, Turandot, Fidelio and more


Listen to a Sample:


We are happy to offer what may be the only solo CD featuring the great and woefully under-recorded dramatic soprano, Gladys Kuchta.  If you do not know this singer that well, now is your chance to hear a dramatic soprano of supreme power and vocal beauty.  Kuchta was among the many Americans who established their careers in Europe after the War and due to the fact that she lived in an era where there was an abundance of riches with regards to dramatic sopranos, she did not leave too many recordings.   This compilation features her in excerpts from Macbeth, Turandot, Fidelio, Der fliegende Holländer, Tristan und Isolde, Die Frau ohne Schatten, and Elektra.
