Matzenauer, Margaret, 1920, Mezzo-Soprano

Few singers occupy a more desirable place in opera and concert than Margaret Matzenauer, assisting soloist of the current pair of Detroit Symphony Orchestra concerts. Mme. Matzenauer is a great favorite with the Detroit musical public and her splendid artistic gifts have received generous recognition at the hands of local audiences on various occasions.

Only once has it been the privilege of Detroit music-lovers to hear Mme. Matzenauer in a Wagner opera, and that was a few years ago in a single performance of "Tristan and Isolde" the beauty of which production and the superb art of the Isolde, marking it indelibly on the records of the city's musical history.

In view of Mme. Matzenauer's rccent triumphs in Wagnerian roles in the Metropolitan opera house, her singing of excerpts from "Tristan and Isolde" and "Gotterdammerung," with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, has an especial appeal at this time and undoubtedly will prove one of the most_satisfying memories of the season. Mme. Matzenauer is a native of Temesvar, Hungary, and made her operatic debut when twenty years old in Strass-burg, in the opera "Oberon." She has a large repertoire in all of the standard operas, in which she has appeared all over Europe and America, and is acknowledged to have no superior in the interpretation of the heroines of the Wagner music-dramas.
