Jan Kiepura was a Polish tenor who was enormously popular internationally during the 1930s both as an opera performer and a film star. Both of these selections were composed by Robert Stolz and are from the 1935 film Ich lieba alle Frauen in which Kiepura starred.
In 1936, Kiepura married Austrian singer and film star Marta Eggerth and the couple regularly performed together until Kiepura’s death in 1966. Eggerth has continued performing well into her late 90s and will celebrate her 100th birthday in April.
