Stepping up to the Podium

No panic – Christoph Prégardien, one of the leading tenors of our time, is still on tour as a soloist. However, considering the success of his St. John and St. Matthew Passions it is no surprise that the singer will increasingly be seen on the conductor’s podium.

He caught the conducting bug on tour with the Ensemble Le Concert Lorrain, Nederlands Kammerkoor and Balthasar Neumann Chor. In a conversation in July 2017, Christoph Prégardien discussed his feelings about his new role, where he finds inspiration for his interpretations and to what extent life on tour is different for singers and conductors.
