A family affair
Christoph Prégardien and his son Julian reunite on the concert stage for a special lieder recital based on their critically acclaimed recording “Father and Son”. In performances through Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the tenors will present lieder arranged for two voices, including works taken from the CD by Schubert, Brahms and Friedrich Silcher as well as music by Mozart and Beethoven.
“Father and Son” was described as a “real treasure” by BBC Music Magazine after its release in 2014, which noted that “the two tenors of father and son – shared DNA, complementary tints and timbres – blend with grace and glee”. Similarly, Gramophone commented that “both tenors display family traits of appealing mellifluousness and impeccable musicality.”
For these five performances – starting in Austria on at the Kufstein Stadtsaal on 4 May, and taking in venues such as the Cologne Philharmonic before ending at the Fränkischer Sommer festival on 25 June – the singers will be accompanied by Michael Gees, who also appeared on the recording.
