Heinrich Winckelshoff

4 December 1882 Cologne – 1951 Bad Godesberg

Heinrich Winckelshoff singsIm Rolandsbogen (composer: Paul Mania, who is also conducting)

Heinrich Winckelshoff singsFür dich allein (Geehl)

He studied violin in Cologne, then voice – the latter also in Italy. He made his debut, again in Cologne, in 1907, and stayed until 1918, then he sang opera as freelancer another two years. His repertory went from the Young Seaman in Tristan to the title role in Parsifal; it included Don Ottavio, Königssohn, Lohengrin, Froh, Fenton (in Falstaff), Turiddu, Pinkerton or the title role in Genesius by Weingartner. From 1910 to 1913, he took part in a complete Ring at the Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels.

In 1920, he joined the Reichshallentheater, once more in Cologne, which staged exclusively operetta. In 1926, he had to quit the stage because of health problems.

Just as important as his stage activity was his career as a lieder interpreter.
