a

Henschel’s voice is as velvet smooth as a pint of Guinness (…) It is not always the case in these songs that the male voice is so beautiful in tone. (…) Henschel is as imaginative and dramatic as anyone could wish for but he marries that with lashings of chocolatey tone to boot.

start: about

Baritone Dietrich Henschel is a towering figure, physically, intellectually, musically and theatrically. His prowess as an interpreter, by which I mean precisely his ability to get below the surface of a song and right into its soul, is extraordinary.

Herald Scotland

Henschel capitalized on his charismatic stage presence and his effortless technique enabled him to fully exploit the playful nature of the music, which the audience ate up.

Bachtrack

At the peak of his career, this vastly experienced (in both opera and Lieder) German baritone encompasses the reflective songs with as much aplomb as he brings to the dramatic pieces.

Grammophone Magazine

quite simply, the world's greatest living lieder singer... One of the greatest things I've ever heard in my life.

Tim Ashley, The Guardian, 15 August 2003 (on Dietrich Henschelʼs performance with Irwin Gage of Schubertʼs Schwanengesang and other lieder, Edinburgh Festival)

DIETRICH HENSCHEL

The year 2023 starts with a new production of Busoni's Doktor Faust at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Under the direction Davide Livermore,  conducted by Cornelius Meister Henschel will impersonate the title role - the same one for which he was awarded with a GRAMMY award at the beginning of his career.

Further opera activities include . Gaetano Donizetti's opera Rita in March at the Opéra de Tours.

Gustav Mahler's Lied von der Erde with the orchestra of Palma and Schönberg's Gurre-Lieder with the States Opera Prague are other highlights in Henschel's agenda.
