LADISLAVA HOTKOVSKA [Wladislawa Chotkowska] [s/ms] (Poland, 1877?-1923)
3.Unidentified Song/Aria [ It.]2:07
 Hotkovska studied in Poland with Aleksandrowicz and then in Paris with Jean de Reszke, making her debut at the Warsaw Opera in Moniuszko’s Hrabina. Her repertoire during this period also included such parts as Santuzza, Elisabeth (Tannhäuser), Carmen, and Marguerite (Faust). 1906 included a tour of Russia, and in 1908 she appeared as Fricka (Die Walküre) and Amneris (Aida) in Bologna. Another of her Wagnerian roles was Brangane, which was part of her repertoire at Cesena in 1909. She also sang Amneris at the Politeama in Genoa, 1909, and appeared with the Italian Opera in Cairo and in Madrid, her roles including mezzo parts such as Azucena as well as occasional visit to the soprano repertoire (Rachel in La Juive as an example quoted in one source). Hotkowska’s only known recordings were six cylinders for Pathé in Warsaw, 1904, as a soprano. The Edison papers give her age as 38 as of June 10, 1912.
