From the studio of W. Höffert in Dresden, with decorative studio imprint to lower margin and studio details printed to verso. 168 x 105 mm.Slightly worn and faded. A student of Julius Stockhausen, Scheidemantel was one of Germany's leading baritones. After early years in Weimar, he spent most of his singing career, from 1886 to 1911, at the Dresden Hofoper, with guest appearances in many places including Covent Garden (from 1884). Famous as a Wagnerian singer, he participated in all Bayreuth festivals from 1886 to 1892, where he sang Wolfram, Telramund, Kurwenal, Hans Sachs, Amfortas, and Klingsor. Roles by other composers in which he excelled were Pizzarro, Alfio (Cavalleria rusticana), and Scarpia; he created the roles of Kunrad (Feuersnot) and Faninal (Der Rosenkavalier) for Richard Strauss.
