RESEARCH IN MUSIC LECTURE SERIES
Richard Tauber and the Technological Voice in Weimar Berlin
Guest speaker: Micaela Baranello, Postdoctoral Fellow in Musicology at Smith College
The talk will examine tenor Richard Tauber's performances of the music of Franz Lehár on stage, record, and screen. Focusing on Tauber's role in Lehár's Das Land des Lächelns, an operetta dating from 1929, Baranello will discuss how Tauber's stage performances intersected with his immensely popular recordings, particularly as Lehár proclaimed his operettas to be more than the sum of their hit songs.
