“Gerhaher’s outstanding qualities–a heavenly baritone, crisp diction, intelligent address–once again find an echo in Huber’s pianism.” Financial Times

Baritone Christian Gerhaher is considered one of the most exciting Lied singers of today. He and Gerold Huber, his most reliable pianist partner of over three decades, have become “bywords for sensitivity, cerebral depth and seeming perfection in a Lieder repertory that they have made their own” (The New York Times ). Together, they’ve been awarded major prizes, including Best Solo Vocal at the Gramophone Awards in 2006, 2015 and 2019.

The duo will perform Schumann’s Dichterliebe (A Poet’s Love), one of the song cycles that established the duo’s mastery of song, while Brahms’s “Regenlied” demonstrates the singer’s unique musicality. Gerhaher once said, “When you sing Brahms, it is astonishing: you feel like an instrument. You don’t just feel like you’re playing a viola, you feel like you are a viola!” (Gramophone) This concert invites us to immerse ourselves in the intimate setting of romantic art songs.
Brahms
“Regenlied” Cycle, Op 59 (Early version) and selected lieder

Schumann
Dichterliebe, Op 48
Sechs Gesänge, Op 89
Drei Gedichte, Op 119
Drei Gesänge, Op 95

Piano: Gerold Huber
