Florian
Boesch

bass

Florian Boesch began his vocal training with his grandmother, the Austrian soprano Ruthilde Boesch, going on to specialise in the song and oratorio repertoire with Robert Holl in Vienna.

Boesch is considered one of today’s leading lieder singers. He is a regular guest at such venues as London’s Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Musikverein in Vienna.

One highlight of his career was the performance of Schubert’s complete lieder with pianist Malcolm Martineau in Glasgow and on tour in Australia. He recently garnered great acclaim with Krenek’s Reisebuch aus den österreichischen Alpen at the Salzburg Festival in 2018.

Boesch has performed concert repertoire with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors; his close relationship with the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt resulted in memorable performances of Handel’s Messiah and Saul and Purcell’s The Fairy Queen.

In recent years, the Austrian baritone has also appeared more regularly on the operatic stage, having sung roles including the title role of Berg’s Wozzeck at the Theater an der Wien and Zebul in Handel’s Jephtha at the Dutch National Opera.

Boesch made his first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2007 singing Christ in Bach’s St Matthew Passion, and has since returned many times.
