Best friends

They have known each other since their youthful days in the small Bavarian town of Straubing: today's world-renowned baritone Christian Gerhaher and his accompanist Gerold Huber. Initially it was Gerold Huber who single-mindedly pursued a career as a musician. Christian Gerhaher still tried medicine and philosophy. Then they discovered their shared enthusiasm for song. The rest of the story is well known. Today, there is hardly a more well-rehearsed team than the two of them. And even if the charismatic and not at all pretentious singer is convincing internationally on opera stages and concert podiums, his intimate song performances are among the most delightful that today's concert life has to offer. His key to the Lied is the profound study of the underlying lyric. He recently published a book entitled »Lyrisches Tagebuch« (Lyrical Diary), with which he once again demonstrates how profound his understanding of the genre is. At the Wiener Konzerthaus, together with Gerold Huber, he now takes us again on a search for the meaning, as he calls it, of songs by the Romantics Robert Schumann and Hugo Wolf, but also by his friend and patron Heinz Holliger.
