Friedrich Schorr (1888 - 1953)

Schorr, the son of the well-known Jewish cantor Mayer Schorr (who, born in Romania, from 1891 sang in the major synagogue of Vienna and was much admired by Mahler) initially wished to become a lawyer. He enrolled at the University of Vienna as a law student, but also studied singing with Adolf Robinson, a singer with a distinguished track record in Europe and America who also taught Leo Slezak and Joseph Schwarz, amongst others.

Having appeared in Chicago in small parts early in 1912, Schorr then auditioned for the Graz Opera, whose intendant invited him to make his formal debut in the summer of that year, as Wotan / Die Walküre. He remained a member of the Graz Opera from 1912 until 1916, during the same period often singing also in Vienna, where he gained a following from its knowledgeable audiences. Next Schorr joined the opera ensemble of the German Theatre in Prague, staying for two years until 1918, and following this with a period of five years, from 1918 to 1923, with the Cologne Opera.
