Brigitte Helm Autograph

Brigitte Helm became famous when she acted – along with Gustav Fröhlich – in Fritz Lang’s classic movie ‘Metropolis’.

Brigitte Helm (March 17, 1908 – June 11, 1996) was a German actress. After Metropolis, Helm made over 30 films, including talking pictures, before retiring in 1936.

Her other appearances include The Love of Jeanne Ney (1927), Alraune (1928), Gloria (1931), The Blue Danube (1932) and Gold (1934).

In 1935, angered by Nazi control of the German film industry, she moved to Switzerland where she later had 4 children with her second husband Dr. Hugo Kunheim, an industrialist. After her retirement from films she refused to grant any interviews concerning her film career.”

Fritz Wunderlich Autograph on Fayer Photo CoA

Fritz Wunderlich Autograph on Photo CoA

Fritz Wunderlich autograph

 

Legendary tenor Fritz Wunderlich as Tamino. Photo by Fayer, hand-signed by Fritz Wunderlich with a quote of The Magic Flute: Ach wie herrlich. Herzlich Fritz Wunderlich.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 9 x 14 c. Good condition.

Friedrich “Fritz” Karl Otto Wunderlich (1930 – 1966) was a German lyric tenor, famed for his singing of the Mozart repertory and various lieder. He died in an accident when he was only 35.

Wunderlich achieved the highest distinction within the German repertory. Of special importance is a recording of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, conducted by Karl Böhm, in which Wunderlich gave a critically acclaimed performance as Prince Tamino, opposite baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the role of Papageno. There is also a live performance of The Magic Flute recorded in 1960 at the Salzburg festival, and several recordings as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Recordings also exist of lesser-known Mozart operas such as Zaide and La Finta Giardiniera.

Wunderlich’s crystal-clear voice, exquisite diction, and intelligent, restrained interpretation also led him to impressive renditions of the lieder cycles of Schubert and Schumann with pianist Hubert Giesen. His famous recording of Schumann’s Dichterliebe remains a gold standard of this genre. Many tenors since have emulated Wunderlich’s interpretation of this cycle.

Desirable, early Wilhelm Furtwaengler Autograph

Desirable, early Wilhelm Furtwaengler Autograph: Hand-signed Photo. CoA

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

3,4 x 5,5 inches.  Very fine condition. No postcard, real photograph. Photo by Hans Dietrich & Co, Wien.

Wilhelm Furtwaengler (1886 -1954) was a German conductor and composer.

At his first concert, he led the Kaim Orchestra (now the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra) in Anton Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony. He subsequently held posts at Munich, Luebeck, Mannheim, Frankfurt, and Vienna, before securing a job at the Berlin Staatskapelle in 1920, and in 1922 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra where he succeeded Arthur Nikisch. Later he became music director of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Salzburg Festival and the Bayreuth Festival, which was regarded as the greatest post a conductor could hold in Germany at the time.

Towards the end of the war, under extreme pressure from the Nazi Party, Furtwaengler fled to Switzerland. It was during this troubled period that he composed what is largely considered his most significant work, the Symphony No. 2 in E minor.
