Baritone

Matthias Goerne

»Few artists … have such a smooth, dark, inviting voice«, according to ›The New York Times‹ describing this singer celebrated by the Wiener Staatsoper, New York Metropolitan Opera and La Scala Milan for his opera and recital performances. Matthias Goerne is one of today’s most versatile and sought-after baritones. The spectrum of his operatic roles ranges from the great Wagnerian and Strauss roles right through to Alban Berg. He has collaborated with almost all of the greatest orchestras and conductors. Most recently, he was Artist in Residence at the New York Philharmonic as well as at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and he is also an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Matthias Goerne has also reached the peak of international acclaim as an ambassador for German Lieder. For his many recordings, this sought-after singer has received numerous awards, including a Grammy, the German Record Critics’ Prize and an Echo Klassik for ›Singer of the Year‹. In the last two years he has released three Lieder recital albums with the pianists Jan Lisiecki, Seong-Jin Cho und Daniil Trifonov all on the Deutsche Grammophon label.  Notable performances last season included those with Jaap van Zweden and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, with Cristian Măcelaru and the Orchestre National de France and with Antonio Pappano and the Boston Symphony. Matthias Goerne has been associated with the Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen for many years. A highlight was the joint performance of Brahms’ ›Requiem‹ in Bremen Cathedral.
