His following project with The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen, the symphonies of Robert Schumann, was as successful as the Beethoven Project.

Soprano

Christina Landshamer

Born in Munich, Christina Landshamer is a worldwide sought-after concert, opera and lieder singer. She studied at the Munich College of Music and Drama as well as at the Stuttgart College of Music and Performing Arts. Her work with conductors such as Daniel Harding, Kent Nagano, Sir Roger Norrington, Stéphane Denève and Riccardo Chailly has seen her perform with the most important orchestras not only in Europe but also in The United States and Canada, where she has performed with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.

Christina Landshamer sang her first opera roles with the Stuttgart State Opera and The Comic Opera Berlin. She played Clarice in Haydn’s ›Il Mondo Della Luna‹ with Nikolaus Harnoncourt at the Theater an der Wien, later giving her debut at the Salzburg Festival as Frasquita in ›Carmen‹ with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. In recent years, Landshamer has appeared in performances at many concert halls across Europe and The United States. She has given several performances of Mahler’s Second Symphony ‘Resurrection’ with Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, which was also recorded for release on CD. Her extensive discography ranges from the Haydn Oratorios to Bizet’s ›Carmen‹. With her warm, lyric soprano voice, Christina Landshamer is an ideal Lieder singer and has already featured at the Schwarzenberg Schubertiad and at London’s Wigmore Hall.

Contralto

Gerhild Romberger

Gerhild Romberger completed her vocal studies with Heiner Eckels at the Detmold College of Music, where she obtained her Concert Exam. Further vocal performance courses with Mitsuko Shirai and Hartmut Höll rounded her studies. She has been Professor of Vocal Studies at Detmold College of Music since 2003.

Her artistic focus lies in concert performance. Her wide repertoire encompasses all the great alto and mezzo roles of the oratorio and concert literature, from the Baroque to the 20th century. Her work with Andris Nelsons and Gustavo Dudamel and the Berlin and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, with Herbert Blomstedt and the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra, Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra as well as concerts with Manfred Honeck have been important milestones of her career in recent years.

In the 2018/19 season, Gerhild Romberger dedicated herself to the music of Mahler, giving concerts featuring ›Lied von der Erde‹ in Monte Carlo, Mahler’s 2nd Symphony at the Accademia Nationale di Santa Cecilia in Rome with the Berlin Philharmonic as well as his 3rd Symphony with the Stavanger Orchestra. Further to this, she returned to Hamburg and the Elbphilharmonie to perform Ligeti’s ›Requiem‹ and another performance of Mahler’s 2nd Symphony with Kent Nagano, before closing the season with Dvorak’s Stabat Mater and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence. Her CD recording of Mahler’s 3rd Symphony with Bernard Haitink the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra was awarded ›Recording of the year‹ in 2018 by the BBC Music Magazine.

Choir

Gaechinger Cantorey

Founded by Helmuth Rilling in 1954, the Gächinger Kantorei has enjoyed the sponsorship of the International Bach Academy Stuttgart since 1981 and is today considered one of the world’s most outstanding concert choirs. During its long history which spans more than 60 years, the choir has performed hundreds of concerts, made countless guest appearances, Radio and CD recordings and can lay claim to inestimable influence through its various notable credentials, for example its collaborations with renowned guest conductors and orchestras, including Masaaki Suzuki, Krzysztof Penderecki and Sir Roger Norrington as well as the Vienna Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic.

During the 2016/17 season, the Bach Academy’s vocal and instrumental ensembles underwent a fundamental change and have since been performing under the one shared name of ›Gaechinger Cantorey‹. The deliberately archaic spelling unites the choir – which Academy Director Hans-Christoph Rademann has been gradually reforming since his appointment in 2013 – with the newly-formed Baroque orchestra. Based on the historical traditions of the Bach era and with its roots in live performance history, the Gaechinger Cantorey stands for a holistic musical approach and the aesthetic sound-ideal of the Baroque. This authentic sound is achieved today through the use of Baroque instruments and musicians who are experts in Baroque performance practices, as well as choirs whose singers are as talented as ›Ripienists‹ (ensemble singers) as they are ›Concertistas‹ (soloists).
