Siegmund Grünfeld

Siegmund Grünfeld sings Die Walküre: Winterstürme wichen dem Wonnemond
I wish to thank Christian Torrent for the recording.
In the 1930s (many years after his recordings, that is), Grünfeld sang on the German-language radio in Czechoslovakia, where they called him an "opera and concert singer"; he sang mainly lieder, some operetta, some operatic arias. Fun fact: in a 1936 radio concert, he sang lieder by Adolf Wallnöfer.

That's the only reference to him that I can find; it seems certain that he never appeared on any stage, and his eventual concert career was not important enough to leave many traces. So I'm sure that singing wasn't his main job.
