The Comedian Harmonists’ sound was characterized by its close harmony, its wide range of voices, and its use of vocal mimicry. They were able to create a sound that was both sophisticated and playful, and they were able to perform a wide variety of music, from classical to jazz to pop.
One of the things that made the Comedian Harmonists so unique was their ability to blend their voices together so perfectly. They were able to create a sound that was almost indistinguishable from a single voice. This was due in part to their careful selection of voices, but it was also due to their years of practice and rehearsal.
The Comedian Harmonists also had a wide range of voices. They had a first tenor who could sing high notes with ease, a second tenor with a warm and rich voice, a baritone with a powerful voice, and a bass with a deep and resonant voice. This wide range of voices allowed them to create a sound that was both full and rich.
Finally, the Comedian Harmonists were known for their use of vocal mimicry. They were able to imitate a wide variety of sounds, including instruments, animals, and even human voices. This added an element of fun and excitement to their performances.LISTEN: “Hungarian Rhapsody #20” from our cast album
