Hermann Uhde (1914 - 1965)

Uhde, whose mother was American and a vocal student of the distinguished baritone Karl Scheidemantel, initially trained as a bass, studying in Bremen with Philipp Krauss, himself a baritone and a significant local musical influence. He made his operatic stage debut at the Stadttheater Bremen in 1936 as Titurel / Parsifal and after two years at Bremen moved to the Stadttheater in Freiburg im Breisgau where he sang from 1938 to 1940.

From 1940 to 1942 Uhde was a member of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, after which he sang from 1942 to 1944 at the German Theatre in The Hague in occupied Holland; here he began to sing baritone parts. Towards the end of World War II he was drafted into the German army, becoming a prisoner of war between April 1945 and February 1946. He joined the Hanover Opera in 1947 and sang there for a year before moving to the Hamburg State Opera, where he was based from 1948 to 1950.
