Dame Olga Maria Elisabeth Friederike Schwarzkopf, DBE (91915 – 2006) was a German-British soprano.
She was among the foremost singers of lieder, and was renowned for her performances of Viennese operetta. After retiring from the stage, she was a voice teacher internationally.
She left a discography that is considerable both in quality and in quantity and will be mostly remembered for her Mozart and Richard Strauss operatic portrayals, her two commercial recordings of Strauss's Four Last Songs, and her countless recordings of lieder, especially those of Wolf.
Schwarzkopf is considered by many to be the greatest German lyric soprano of the twentieth century and one of the finest Mozart singers of all time, with an "indescribably beautiful" voice.
