Du bist die Welt für mich is a fictional story of the life of the great German tenor Richard Tauber. No matter, because the portrayal of Tauber by his 'successor' Rudolf Schock is very much worth while. Not only does Schock give an acceptable performance as an actor, but his voice is beautiful and smooth. It is a great shame that this film isn't available on DVD yet. The popular tenor Rudolf Schock (1915 - 1986) made a number of films, the first of these was Du bist die Welt für mich. It was probably his best. Schock is now best remembered for his many recordings of operetta's, but he was also an acclaimed singer of opera, oratorio and Lieder. His recordings of Die schöne Müllerin by Schubert and Dichterliebe by Schumann are legendary and can compete with the finest recordings of colleges as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Fritz Wunderlich.
