About

Christiane Karg is one of the most sought-after lyric sopranos of the present day, acclaimed for her embodiment of operatic roles and as a lieder, concert and oratorio singer. She can be seen and heard all around the world: at lieder recitals in New York’s Carnegie Hall and in the Vienna Konzerthaus, at La Scala in Milan with her 2016 debut in Der Rosenkavalier, at regular guest appearances at the Munich State Opera and the Dresden Semperoper, at the Salzburg Festival and at Glyndebourne. By a wise selection of roles and repertoire, the soprano has continued to develop her voice and strike out in new directions.

Christiane Karg proves her versatility and her ability on her CDs, which always present an adventurous blend of familiar repertoire and new discoveries. She delights her listeners as much with an all-Richard-Strauss lieder album as she does with her most recent CD “Scene!”, which brought together arias by Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn and Mendelssohn.

The exclusive coupling of lieder and arias on her current “Portrait” CD provides us for the first time with an all-round view of what she has achieved in the last few years. Sensitively, with intelligence and imaginative use of her voice, she presents Beethoven’s concert aria Ah, perfido as convincingly as Richard Strauss’s Heimliche Aufforderung. This is the portrait of a many-faceted artist who can keep her audience literally on the edge of their seats.

“All of the recordings I have borrowed from, whether they be pure lieder programmes with Burkhard Kehring and Malcolm Martineau, or those with Jonathan Cohen and his ensemble Arcangelo, are the fruit of longstanding ideas, the outcome of hours of sifting through material in libraries and archives, and the result of discussions with artistic colleagues. All of these pieces provide some form of insight into my inner thoughts, my very soul.” - Christiane Karg
