Christian Gerhaher & Gerold Huber

Christian Gerhaher Baritone Gerold Huber Piano

The 2013 Queen’s Hall concerts open in style with one of the finest Lieder singers of his generation.

German baritone Christian Gerhaher has been widely celebrated for the remarkable sincerity and glorious naturalness of his singing, which holds emotional truth and intellectual rigour in perfect balance.

Joined by regular collaborator Gerold Huber, Gerhaher brings the exquisite poetry of his voice to bear on intimate songs by Robert Schumann. The hushed Sechs Gesänge are poignant songs of betrayed or hopeless love, and the Lieder und Gesänge aus Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre are exceptionally expressive settings of Goethe.

The concert also features Dichterliebe, Schumann’s well-loved cycle of sensitive love songs blending subtle melodies and aching harmonies to convey poignant scenes of desire and disillusion.
