Christoph Prégardien is one of the world’s foremost lyric tenors, but he is particularly renowned as a lieder singer, and within lieder, is most acclaimed for his interpretations of Schubert. His recording of the composer’s heart-wrenching vocal masterpiece, Winterreise — a deep psychological journey through lost love — earned Prégardien a Grammy nomination. An earlier Schubert disc was named a “Best of the Year” in Gramophone. Hear Prégardien with the fine accompanist, Julius Drake, in his eagerly-awaited 92Y debut in the ideal context for his artistry — our Schubert: Epic & Intimate series.
“His lyric tenor voice had a youthful glow, yet he sang with plaintive beauty and piercing insight.”
