Richard Tauber: A Portrait In His Golden Years.
Daniel O’Hara – Richard Tauber Chronology – Last revised: May 2018. I first became enthralled by the voice and artistry of Richard Tauber in my mid-teens through a 1955 BBC television showing of his 1936 film Land without Music. I soon began to collect his records and compile a discography, though my only sources then were Clough & Cummings’ World Encyclopaedia of Recorded Music (WERM) and old Parlophone Catalogues. Early work on this Chronology began some 40 years ago in a series of notebooks. The information they contained was gradually transferred to a computer file, starting in 2007. This was added to and modified over the following years until a draft - still fairly sketchy - was considered extensive enough to post online in June 2011.

Richard Tauber, born in the Austrian city of Linz in 1891, began his operatic career in 1913 singing the role of Tamino in Die Zauberflöte by Mozart and quickly established himself as a leading lyric tenor in Austria and Germany. But it was in lighter music that he won wide popular acclaim, when from about 1925 he began to appear in operettas by Franz Lehár, Johann Strauss II and others. He became a naturalized British citizen in 1940 and died in London in 1948. In his later years he gave many highly successful concerts of both serious and lighter music and continued to appear frequently on stage in operettas and musicals, including Old Chelsea, which he wrote himself. Tauber made more than 700 commercial recordings, all in the era of the 78 rpm disc.
