Aksel Schiøtz

Aksel Schiøtz, dansk tenor, født 1906 i Roskilde, død 1975 i København.
Cand.mag. (dansk og engelsk), 1930. Debuterede på Det kongelige Teater i Mozarts Cosi fan tutte, 1931. Ved festivalen i Glyndebourne i 1946 alternerede han med Peter Pears som 'Male Chorus' ved uropførelsen af Benjamin Brittens The Rape of Lucretia.
Det var dog ikke som operasanger at Schiøtz gjorde karriere. Derimod huskes hans tolkninger af danske sange samt af Schuberts og Schumanns Lieder og Bellmans sange. Under besættelsen blev han umådelig populær gennem sine indspilninger af danske sange fra 1800- og det tidlige 1900-tal.
Fra 1955 til 1957 var han professor i musik ved University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
