Description:
(c. 1840-1889) Italian-born operatic soprano, elder sister of famed soprano Adelina Patti. Born into a musical family, she studied piano in her youth before following her younger sister's inclination toward singing. As a child, Carlotta developed a handicap that caused a noticeable limp in her walk. Due to her condition and personal preferences, she mostly avoided operatic performances and sang on the concert stage 1863-78. While not able to achieve her sister's level of acclaim, Carlotta nonetheless received top billing in concerts in the US, Great Britain, and Australia. She was known for her extensive vocal range, reportedly being able to reach a G sharp in altissimo. She often sang songs such as “Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen” that highlighted this extensive range. She married cellist Ernest de Munck in 1879 and taught singing in Paris after her retirement. Autograph Sentiment (“in rembrance of” Signed on 2 ¾ x 4 ½ card, New York, October 6 1863.
