Max Lipmann (born 18 July 1881 Stolzenau an der Weser) made his debut as Max (Freischütz)
in 1905 at the Stadttheater in Heilbronn. He was then only active as
a concert and oratorio singer until 1909, when he joined the
Stadttheater in Aachen. In 1911, he made his debut at La Scala in the role
of David (Meistersinger). Lipmann was a member of the Boston
Opera Company for the 1912/13 season, singing the roles of Nicias
(Thaïs) and Lyonel (Martha) as well as comprimario roles in Tristan
and in Louise. He was with the opera house of Mannheim from 1913 to 1923, and
participated in the North America tour of the German Opera Company in
1923/24. After that, he focused his activity once more on the concert podium.
1934–37, he is known to have sung with the Jüdischer
Kulturbund in Frankfurt; his whereabouts after that date are unknown.
I wish to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the recording and the biographical notes.
