The partnership that has developed between Christian Gerhaher and Gerold Huber is one of the most stable and prolific in the lied genre. This season the Palau de la Música Catalana includes an evening dedicated entirely to Gustav Mahler's compositions.
A disciple of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Inge Borkh, baritone Christian Gerhaher communicates a fascinating balance between the music and the text of the lied thanks to a light, firm and nuanced voice. This requires an introspection that has the support of pianist Gerold Huber, who also shines in his own light, as well as being the perfect travel companion.
Gerhaher has collaborated throughout his thirty-year career with numerous conductors, such as Sir Simon Rattle, Daniel Harding, Herbert Blomstedt, Pierre Boulez and Daniel Barenboim, among others.
"In the performances of baritones, therefore, coexist the perfection of the great masters and instability, certainty and doubt." Luis Gago, «The País».
