Rudolf Schock sings Die große Sünderin: Das Leben des Schrenk
Recording of Das Leben des Schrenk from Künneke's operetta "Die große Sünderin" - certainly the only operetta piece that can really compare with demanding opera tenor arias like Asile héréditaire and the like (the final note is a D flat).
Rudolf Schock: the utmost top is not really easy, but nonetheless certainly a decent recording of this difficult piece.
