About

As a Lied interpreter, on the concert stage and, increasingly, on the operatic stage as well, the baritone Christian Gerhaher is currently setting new artistic standards. After publication of two choral-symphonic recordings with this exceptional singer, BR-KLASSIK now presents a Lieder CD containing recorded material from Gerhaher's time as Artist in Residence with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Gerhaher's finely coordinated programme – ambiguously entitled "folkslied" – examines the exciting contrast between the Volkslied (folk song) and the Kunstlied (art song). It contains the rarely heard Folk Song Arrangements by Benjamin Britten, the folk song arrangements for piano trio and voice by Beethoven and Haydn. Gerhaher's decision to use German texts to Haydn's melodies that were published in the 1920s represents a tribute to Fritz Wunderlich, whose first recording of the German text versions is particularly close to his heart. The instrumental partners are: Gerold Huber, Gerhaher's longtime accompanist; Sebastian Klinger, the principal cellist of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks who is currently pursuing a solo career; and, on the violin, Anton Barachovsky, leader of the Symphonieorchester.
