Julian Prégardien, Christoph

Ever since the late eighteenth and throughout the nineteenth century, the collection and research of folksong texts were associated with the initiation of a tradition. A “folksong idea” began to spring up based on concrete historical sources and facts, which became a guiding light both for enlightened education and also for the classical and early romantic generation of writers – as a medium for the universal shaping of the human character, as symbol of a lost Golden Age and as a yearned-for “German nation” seen as a cultural archive. However, this ideal did not recognise a solidifi ed artefact in the creatively adapted and re-set ‘Volkslied’, but the traces of a practical experience – Johann Gottfried Herder , the inventor of the term ‘Volkslied’, felt himself transported back “away from paper (...) into the living emotion of the people”. Against the background of contemporary speculations about cultural theory, the association of word and music in song thus became a social act endowing a sense of identity, behind which the assumed substantial and elemental relationship between language and music mysteriously shimmers like a water mark.

Born 1956 in Limburg, Germany, Christoph Prégardien began his musical education as a choirboy. He then studied singing with Martin Gründler and Karlheinz Jarius in Frankfurt, Carla Castellani in Milan, Alois Treml in Stuttgart and attended Hartmut Höll’s lieder-class. 
Widely regarded as among the foremost lyric tenors, Christoph Prégardien frequently collaborates with conductors such as Barenboim, Chailly, Gardiner, Harnoncourt, Herreweghe, Luisi, Metzmacher, Nagano, Sawallisch and Thielemann. His repertory spans a wide range from the great Baroque, Classical and Romantic Oratorios to 20th century works by Britten, Killmayer, Rihm, Stravinsky. 
Recognized as an eminent recitalist, Christoph Prégardien is regularly welcomed at the major recital venues of Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin, Cologne, Amsterdam, Salzburg, Zurich, Vienna, Barcelona and Geneva, as well as during his concert tours throughout Italy, Japan and North America. Chance leads him back to the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, where he resumes his compositional studies and eventually graduates. He now develops first rate pianistic chops on his own, composes a number of works, gains international renown as lied accompanist of extraordinary proportions with Christoph Prégardien and also appears in concerts globally; in Paris, London, New York and Tokio. All the while, he nurses and feeds his preference for combining the performance of music of past masters with living inspiration, thereby creating remarkable performances with his instrument.

Julian Prégardien

Julian Prégardien possesses one of the most distinguished profiles among the young generation of singers, enjoying widespread success in equal measure in opera, concert and Lied repertoire. Within a wide variety of styles and periods, Julian Prégardien specializes in Baroque music and Romantic artsong. He regularly collaborates with conduc- tors Christophe Rousset, René Jacobs and Kent Nagano, in productions with the Bavarian Radio Choir and the Audi Youth Choral Academy.
Julian Prégardien appears with leading European early music ensem- bles such as the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Concerto Köln and Con- certo Copenhagen, as well as with world-renowned modern orchestras such as the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Bavarian Ra- dio Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal. He is invited to perform at Salzburg Festival, the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music and the Festival de Beaune (France). Furthermore, Julian Prégardien is one of the chosen soloists who will perform a number of recitals during the 2015-2016 in a cycle of the complete songs of Franz Schubert – a major joint collaboration between Wigmore Hall (Lon- don) and the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg (Austria). His first solo CD “An die Geliebte” (myrios classics, 2014) received high accolades from the international press and was nominated in 2015 for a series of distinctions, including the BBC Music Magazine Award of the Year and the International Classical Music Award (ICMA)
