Born: March 17, 1910 - Böhl (Pfalz), Germany

The German baritone, Walter Hauck, completed his music and singing studies at the Musikhochschule Berlin. Already during his training he appeared since 1925 as a concert singer.

After World War II, he made a major shift and focused nearly completely on his concert career and could be found on the stage only occasionally at the Städtischen Oper Berlin. In the concert hall he was estimated primarily for his art of Bach interpretation, but he dedicated himself also to the contemporary music work. In 1953 he sang at the Festival of Venice Ode an Napoleon by Arnold Schoenberg.
