In loving memory of German Bass Kurt Moll (1938-2017)

My late tribute to the great German Bass Kurt Moll, who unfortunately, passed away on March 5 of this year at age 78.
On March 5 of 2017, the Opera world lost one of the greatest and most beautiful voices ever….
Extraordinary Bass, one of my favorites….. always magnificent, I will never forget when I saw Kurt Moll for the first time as Il Commendatore in the 1987 Salzburg production of Don Giovanni along with Samuel Ramey and Ferruccio Furlanetto and with Herbert von Karajan conducting, also later as Hunding in the Otto Schenk’s production of Die Walküre at the Met, and also his magnificent performances as King Marke in Tristan und Isolde, Sarastro in Die Zauberflöte, Baron Ochs in Der Rosenkavalier, Osmin in Die Entführung aus dem Serail and specially as Gurnemanz in Parsifal. Extraodinary Bass and we will never forget him and his rich beautiful voice. His performances will always live with us. Thank you, Kurt Moll, for your many, wonderful, beautiful performances. Rest in peace, Kurt Moll
