Christoph Prégardien, Tenor

Born in Limburg in 1956, Christoph Prégardien began his musical career as a cathedral chorister. He later studied voice with Martin Gründler and Karlheinz Jarius in Frankfurt, Carla Castellani in Milan and Alois Treml in Stuttgart, as well as Lied performance with Hartmut Höll at the Frankfurt Musikhochschule. Christoph Prégardien enjoys very substantial international recognition as one of the most outstanding lyric tenors and appears as a Lieder, concert and opera performer. Among the many well-known conductors with whom he has worked are Barenboim, Chailly, Gardiner, Harnoncourt, Herreweghe, Luisi, Metzmacher, Nagano, Sawallisch, Cambreling and Thielemann. His concert repertoire includes the great oratorios and passions from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods, but also works from the seventeenth (Monteverdi, Purcell, Schütz) and twentieth centuries (Britten, Killmayer, Rihm, Stravinsky). Christoph Prégardien has performed roles such as Tamino, Don Ottavio, Tito, Almaviva, Fenton, and Monteverdi’s Ulisse with Europe’s leading opera companies. He is particularly highly regarded as a singer of Lieder. His recordings of German Romantic Lieder were rapturously received by the public and classical music magazines, and have won international record critics’ awards.
