“[Gerhaher’s recent recitals] have been nothing short of sublime … prov[ing] once again that he ranks as today’s peerless singer of lieder.”
—The Telegraph (UK)
While he has triumphed in international opera and oratorio appearances, Christian Gerhaher is also today’s foremost interpreter of lieder, with his vocal artistry profoundly conveying the poetry and emotional seed of each song. After inaugurating the reopening of the Board of Officers Room in 2013, the burnished baritone returns with his longstanding recital partner Gerold Huber for a program that highlights the Viennese peak of the art song tradition.
Liederabend of the Viennese School
Program to include works by Beethoven, Schoenberg, Haydn, and Berg
The Recital Series is supported in part by a generous grant from Gwen Norton on behalf of the IKBS, and by The Reed Foundation.
The Recital Series is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
