BLANCHE MARCHESI, Soprano, * 04 April 1863 Paris, † 15 December 1940 London;

30 Aug

French soprano Blanche Marchesi (1863-1940) was the daughter of the great French vocal teacher, Mathilde Marchesi. Blanche made her debut (1900) in Prague as Brünnhilde.

Blanche Marchesi, the Baroness de Cacamisi … standing like a goddess at the head of the piano in her home, amid the works of all arts that she has patiently collected with the rare knowledge and intuition of a Spitzer, singing one of Schubert’s song, every word of which is felt as if it were coined in the innermost recessed of the heart and pronounced by lips which knew the secret of magnetic inspiration. Blanche Marchesi is the personification of song which holds the modern mind in sway because it possesses all than man has thought, has felt and has suffered. She is the perfect type of the coming singing.
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle (Brooklyn, New York) by Emma Bullet, Sunday, November 4, 1894
