Richard Mayr (1877 - 1935)

The son of the proprietor of the Salzburg Gablerbräu, a hotel and brewery, Richard Mayr was a medical student in Vienna, where he sang with the choral society of the Vienna Academy of Music (he was later to study singing here). During 1900 he sang the bass part in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis in Bolzano and in Dvořák’s Requiem in Vienna.

Having been recommended by the concertmaster of the Vienna Court Opera to Cosima Wagner, Mayr made his Bayreuth debut in 1902 as Hagen / Götterdämmerung, repeating this role in 1904, 1908 and 1924 as well as singing Pogner / Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Gurnemanz / Parsifal between 1910 and 1914. A month after his Bayreuth debut he first appeared at the Vienna Court Opera at the invitation of its Music Director Gustav Mahler, singing Silva / Ernani. An immensely popular singer, Mayr remained an important member of the Viennese company for the rest of his life.
