I saw him many years ago at the Met (as I recall 
Devia was the Constanze but I could be wrong on 
that) and I thought he was the best one in the cast.  Loved his voice.

I'm thinking that the first time I heard Moll was 
when I was a teen, as Osmin on the
recording of Entfuhrung (with 
Auger/Grist/Schreier) - which I don't think I've heard in
years, but I remember as being one of those 
recordings that went the cheesy option of
having non-singing actors do all the dialogue 
(which always sounded phony to me). On the
original LP release, they also included Der 
Schauspieldirektor with the same singers.

In any case, I remember those marvelous round low 
notes - something that was so
intriguing to me back in those days (we expect 
the high notes, but the singers that can
really make a meal of the low notes seem rarer). 
Certainly the right way to hear my first
Osmin, lol.

Of course, he was much more than just a low note 
singer - the whole voice was marvelous
and memorable, as others have posted already.

RIP, Kurt.
