Christian Gerhaher

With Gerold Huber at the piano

Description Program Artists

Gerhaher sings Schubert – three words that make the heart of every music lover beat faster, given that Gerhaher is considered one of the world’s finest lied singers. His Schubert interpretations have set a standard by which every musician has to be measured. The baritone has titled his program Abendröthe (Evening glow). The romantic Schubert was particularly fascinated by the transition between day and night, when everything becomes unclear, ambiguous. The contours gradually blur, all of a sudden you find yourself in the dark, the moon shines forth – elemental events to which the composer dedicated his most beautiful songs.
