      Austrian singer Richard Tauber (1891-1948) was one of the most widely celebrated musical celebrities of his time. A prominent exponent of popular song and operetta, Tauber’s career was closely associated with operetta’s golden age in pre-war Europe. In this recording, Piotr Beczała shares his deep affinity for this timeless music in a recital of favorites by Lehár, Kálmán, Robert Stolz, Johann Strauss, Jr. and others, continuing the tradition of legendary predecessors like Fritz Wunderlich and Nicolai Gedda.
