Masterclass with Baritone Matthias Goerne at Bennett Gordon Hall

The Program for Singers offers a unique setting for 15 classical singers to delve deeply into the vast repertoire of art song for three weeks. Fellows are paired with staff collaborative pianists to work with a faculty of distinguished musicians, pedagogues, and scholars on varied aspects of vocal performance, including style, technique, language, diction, dramaturgy, performance, and career preparation.

In addition to several afternoon and evening concerts presented during the summer, the musicians participate in a series of public masterclasses, where the faculty or a Ravinia guest artist provide in-the-moment insights on the fellows’ performances of excerpts from their repertoire, guiding both the growth of their interpretations and sharing the experience with all in attendance.

This masterclass is led by baritone Matthias Goerne, who is celebrated around the globe for his opera and concert performances, having learned from such eminent artists as Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. An honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music in London since 2001, he has also been honored with several Grammy nominations and European recording awards, including as Singer of the Year by the ECHO Klassik in 2017. Across his career, Goerne has regularly appeared on the stages of the Met, the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, Madrid’s Teatro Real, Paris National Opera, and Vienna State Opera. He recently released a series of albums on Deutsche Grammophon, including collections of Beethoven songs with pianist Jan Lisiecki and Schumann and Brahms songs with pianist Daniil Trifonov, and his latest highlights works by Schubert in arrangements for voice and orchestra.
