The San Francisco Symphony Presents Great Performers

Highly praised for his warm, fluid baritone voice and his profound interpretations, Matthias Goerne is one of the most internationally sought-after vocalists. In his SFS recital debut, he teams with renowned conductor and pianist—and frequent musical collaborator—Christoph Eschenbach. Their previous recital appearances have been praised for their “insight, dramatic intensity, and . . . artistry” (Chicago Classical Review).

"[Matthias Goerne] dynamic range is huge, and the power at the extremities of his voice are fully equal to that of its middle register."

Concert Length is approximately 2 hours.

Ann Midgette writes about Matthias Goerne's recent performance of Winterreise, "Goerne kept the whole thing on a low flame, singing with wistful, pillowy softness so that past love and current desolation were factors in the same emotional state. That is plenty of drama right there, but not many singers are savvy enough to hold back and exist in it." Read the full Washington Post article.
