In Memoriam Christel Goltz

In Memoriam Christel Goltz


Soprano Christel Goltz was a discovery of conductor Karl B?hm; before she became a singer, Goltz had been a dancer and was physically the antithesis of the typical operatic soprano: small, lithe, and energetic. Despite her diminutive stature, Goltz had a big voice that easily made it out to the farthest tier, and it is said that when the character Narraboth killed himself in Strauss' Salome, that Goltz would leap over his dead body during the "Dance of the Seven Veils"; sopranos, do not try this at home. It was in dramatic roles such as Salome and Elektra that Goltz made her mark, and by all accounts in performance she was extremely effective at them. The only sizable studio recordings she made -- Salome with Clemens Krauss and Elektra with Georg Solti -- were in such roles. Early in her career, Goltz also created roles in works of Carl Orff and Swiss composer Heinrich Sutermeister; excerpt performances of these can be heard toward the end of the second disc of Preiser's In Memoriam Christel Goltz...
