New Music

The Old - AND the New

Contemporary Music has been a special focal point in my work, in addition to many great traditional roles.

Even more than the earlier styles, Contemporary Music demands technical perfection and an immense variety of vocal expression, and sometimes even a co-creative potential.

It has allowed me to work personally with some of the greatest composers of the century:

Pierre Boulez, Peter Eötvös, Wolfgang Rihm, Ennio Morricone, Salvatore Sciarrino, Philip Glass.

I am honored to have been the lead soloist in some extraordinary, fascinating pieces of new music:

DER MALER TRÄUMT, Concertgebouw Amsterdam (World Premiere)
