The exquisiteness of Gerhaher


Extraordinary recital which offered last 21 December the German baritone Christian Gerhaher, accompanied by his faithful pianist Gerold Huber, at Teatro de la Zarzuela.

The first thing that catches the eye is its light color voice, rare in a baritone. This quality allows him to reach high notes with ease and lightness. The route of your records is large, the perfect diction, variety of shades. Capable of expressing soft but intense drama, as demonstrated in the Kindertotenlieder (Songs for dead children) that were not programmed, but that he offered to replace the Rückert-Lieder.

A clear voice, Elegant, expressive, subtle. With impeccable lines and discreet expressiveness. Always masterfully accompanied on piano by Gerold Huber, with which he forms a perfect team. Huber's exquisiteness at the piano contributes and accompanies, accentuating or filling with nuances or energy the requirements of each song and Gerhaher.

If Gerhaher's highest aspiration is the deepening of the interpretation of the German art song, your way in this direction is, unequivocally, impeccable.
