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.
