Emilio de Gogorza

Emilio de Gogorza (1872-1949) was a Spanish-American baritone.

He was born in Brooklyn, New York but he sang in many languages, including French, English, Italian, and Spanish. Owing to a limp, he did not appear in opera but became a renowned concert and recital artist instead.

De Gogorza made many recordings which display the intelligence and sensitivity of his singing and his good vocal technique. He sang with the great operatic tenor Enrico Caruso a Spanish song called "A la luz de la luna" (In the moonlight). In 1928, he recorded the same song with another famous tenor. Tito Schipa.

He was married at one time to the American soprano Emma Eames and died in 1949 in New York City, from lung cancer.

De Gogorza had taught in retirement and one of his pupils was the American composer, Samuel Barber.
