Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jacques Urlus (January 6, 1867 in Hergenrath, near Aachen - June 6, 1935 in Noordwijk, Netherlands), was a Dutch dramatic tenor. He sang to great critical acclaim at major opera houses on both sides of the Atlantic, and his recordings of the music of Richard Wagner are considered to be among the finest ever made. Jacques Urlus was born to music-loving Dutch parents in the-then German, nowadays Belgian-town of Hergenrath (now part of Kelmis) and grew up in Tilburg in The Netherlands. Since the family was poor they could not afford a musical education for their son who had to work at a steel mill in Utrecht instead, singing in choirs in his free time. During military service an officer recognised his musical talents and offered to pay for his musical lessons. But since this offer did not include money for food and lodging, the young man could not accept.show more
