Dr. Edmund Sallis, a journalist, teacher, and classical leider singer who has performed in soap operas, classical operas, and in concert, has completed the translation of the German book “Stargardt-Wolff, Edith: Pathfinder of Great Musicians” to English is an enlightening memoir highlighting the significant impact of Hermann and Louise Wolff on the golden age of German and Austrian music from 1880 until 1935.

“My home, the home of the well-known founder of the konzertdirektion—concert agency—which was named after him and his wife, Louise, was evidently one of the most interesting and exciting homes during the golden age of Berlin. From the 1880s through the ’nineties of the previous century up until 1935 (the year of my mother’s death), one met there all the great and greatest from the realm of music, illustrious names of international reputation, celebrated composers and conductors, musicians from all the countries from around the world in a colorful mixture of languages. Young talent, emerging stars of the artistic younger generation were also present. It was a special gift of my parents to discover exceptional musical talent with unerring instinct and their own exceptional power of judgment and to prepare them for the rise to fame and international careers.”
-Edith Stargardt-Wolff
