Past Images of the Month - June 2016

< Previous / Next >

David Bispham (1857-1921) was born in Philadelphia. Engaged by  Harris, he deputised as Kurwenal in Tristan and Isolde and passed at one bound into the ranks of distinguished baritones.  His feat of singing in German the difficult role of Kurwenal to the Tristan of Alvary was the more remarkable because it was accomplished without a single orchestral rehearsal.
