Compilation: Leonie Rysanek: 1953 - 1976. Excerpts from Medea, Tosca, Aida, Macbeth and more
Listen to a Sample:
Leonie Rysanek was one of the heroes of my youth. The kind of idol that one can only have during ones teenage years. However, whereas similar idols revealed themselves to be of the false variety, Rysanek has maintained her place in my heart. The voice was just unique. It was immense and soared like no other. But Rysanek delivered more than just impressive acrobatics. A consummate actress, the music was never a vehicle to display her voice but the impetus that gave it wings. I invite everyone to leave their thoughts about Rysanek and to enjoy this compilation which shows her versatility and, of course, her genius.
