Dietrich Henschel joins CPM

We are delighted to announce the addition of German baritone Dietrich Henschel to the CPM list for UK representation. An artist of exceptional versatility, Henschel is highly-regarded for his appearances as recitalist, on the concert platform and on the opera stage with repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to the most challenging works of the present day.
“The subtlety of Henschel’s acting matches the complexity of his vocal characterization so that, by the end, you not only feel you’ve been taken on a vast journey from joy to grief and back again, but also believe that Orfeo’s own music really has the power to affect both gods and nature.”  **** The Guardian 11 December 2009
Henschel’s opera engagements this season include Beckmesser and Don Alfonso in Leipzig and Pollux at the Theater an der Wien. He will perform Schubert with Radio Sinfonieorchester Berlin / Janowski and  Mahler with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic / Herreweghe. He joins Semyon Bychkov for both Brahms and Glanert with the Munich Philharmonic and Britten with the Accademia Santa Cecilia as well as Chailly for Mahler with the Gewandhaus Orchestra.
