With his supple, agile and tender tenor voice as well as his model enunciation and versatility, Werner Güra is one of the most sought-after soloists of his fach for concert and oratorio repertoire.
His interpretation of Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang with the Berlin Philharmonic under Sir John Eliot Gardiner in March won rave reactions from audience and reviewers alike. At the end of April, this was followed by another rendition of this work in Vicenza with the Cappella Andrea Barca under Sir András Schiff, and an ensemble recital of Brahms’ Liebeslieder-Walzer.
Now Werner Güra appears at L’Auditori in Barcelona, where he gives three performances of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis. He moves on to the Philharmonie in Cologne for Schumann’s oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri, with the orchestra Le Cercle de l’Harmonie under Jérémie Rhorer. This concert will be available at a later date as on-demand video – for more information, click here.
In June you can hear Werner Güra perform Haydn’s oratorio Die Schöpfung with the early music ensemble Gli Angeli Genève at Victoria Hall in Geneva. This is followed by Mendelssohn’s oratorio Paulus with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin as part of the Rheingau Music Festival.
