Who is this female singer?
Hi, I've found a version of a famous choral work "wir winden dir den jungfernkranz" from a Weber opera "Der Freischütz", in the background music of this video:
I've listened to many versions, may be 15 different, and none of them seem to be the one used in that video. How can I know who's singing that?
You may have already done this, but I used Shazam and I guess they’re not into opera as there was very little extra help , but did credit it to the Apollo Symphony Orchestra
Yes' I've used Shazam and SoundHound, and I got as well Apollo Symphony Orchestra, but I can't find that one. This is frustrating...
I am familiar with some opera singers but do not recognize this ones voice. Dawn Upshaw is my favorite
In the 80s I bought a cassette of something or other and it was mislabelled and instead of whatever I thought was on it there was a soprano singing to a piano. I took it back to the shop and they said, "yes we've had a few of those back in, we'll give you a refund". I replied, "no, it's great, I'm keeping it, but who is it?" "No, idea - it might be Schwarzkopf". I bought a Schwarzkopf cassette. It wasn't her. Never did find out who it was. All my cassettes went in the bin 20 years ago.
I don't know why, but I find her voice way better to other versions I've listened to in the last few days. May be it's just personal preferences, may be it's something else, but I will not be at ease until I find this one. I'm about sending a private message to the YouTube channel.
I would think any opera fanatic would be able to tell you who this is or who it might be.
You could write Epicurious - they should have licensed the music to sync with the video and therefore should have information about the recording.
I contacted Epicurious a few hours ago (I have been helped so much by this forum, but don't have much to give back!)...I'll let you know if they respond!
I searched under:
I can't listen to it! It's greyed out!
I'm not sure how Spotify works; perhaps it is necessary to sign up for it?
I've signed up, I logged in but still can't.
Have you tried asking the Apollo Orchestra which soprano has sung that solo with them?
