About the Artist

Tim Smith of The Baltimore Sun once wrote, “If you are very, very lucky, you get to hear a performance every now and then that is so sublime in execution, so profound in expressive realization that it will have a place with you for the rest of your life. I felt I had one of those experiences when baritone Matthias Goerne sang [Schubert]. I felt privileged to witness it.” And lo and behold, in our own intimate Richardson Auditorium, we close our Concert Classics series with a touch of the transcendent as Goerne comes and performs the entire Die Schöne Mullerin song cycle by Schubert. Goerne’s voice is typically heard in giant rooms like Carnegie or Disney Hall, but for lieder, and especially the deeply personal lieder of Schubert at his peak, Richardson is a much more immediate environment to experience this music as it was created and intended. He has been called the heir of the late Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, singing the repertoire that made him a star.
