CHRISTOPH PRÉGARDIEN tenor
JULIUS DRAKE, pianist

Terrace Theater

One of the world's most revered lyric tenors, Christoph Prégardien is known for consummate technical control, superior musicality, and an innate ability to get to the emotional core of each song he interprets. Not heard in Washington since his last Vocal Arts DC recital in 1999, he received the coveted Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik (German Record Critics' Prize) in 2016 for his CD on the Challenge label of the same program he will perform for our audiences: Poetisches Tagebuch (A Poetic Diary), an all-Schubert program of songs set to German poetry.

Program to include Poetisches Tagebuch (A Poetic Diary), musical settings by Franz Schubert of poems by Schulze and other German masters.

"His lyric tenor voice had a youthful glow, yet he sang with plaintive beauty and piercing insight."

ANTHONY TOMMASINI, The New York Times
