Catalogue Note

"...two artists can help each other against the world - of that I am certain - and can sustain and encourage each other and keep aspiration alive..."

George Henschel (1850-1934) was a conductor and baritone of German origin. He had a successful career in Germany - becoming a close friend of Brahms - before settling in Britain in 1884, where he became much sought-after as a conductor.
