His lyric tenor voice had a youthful glow, yet he sang with plaintive beauty and piercing insight. The New York Times
Precise vocal control, clear diction, intelligent musicality and an ability to get to the heart of everything he sings all ensure Christoph Prégardien’s place among the world’s foremost lyric tenors. Especially revered as a Lieder singer, he kicks off the 2020/2021 season together with pianist Julius Drake at the Chopin and his Europe Festival, before the pair give joint recitals in the Boulez Saal Berlin and at Schubertiade Schwarzenberg in spring 2021. Additional appearances include concerts with Michael Gees in Madrid as well as with Stefan Litwin at the Schwetzinger SWR Festival. Also, he performs several times with piano trio accompaniment, first, with the Oberon Trio, followed by recitals with Franziska Hölscher, Jens-Peter Maintz and Daniel Heide at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, amongst others. In the beginning of 2021, a special «father&son» project together with his son Julian Prégardien, pianist Lars Vogt, Orchestre de chambre de Paris and choreographer Thieû Nang was presented at Philharmonie de Paris, broadcasted by ARTE Concert. Further highlights of the two-generation-duo include performances in the Théâtre Royal de La Monnaie Brussels and, together with Anima Eterna, in the Kölner Philharmonie.
