Biography
Matthias Goerne

Matthias Goerne is The Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence at the New York Philharmonic for the 2018–19 season. In this role, he will appear with the Philharmonic and Music Director Jaap van Zweden in Schubert and Strauss songs, Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem, and John Adams’s The Wound-Dresser, and perform chamber music with Philharmonic musicians and pianist Daniil Trifonov. One of the world’s most versatile and internationally sought-after vocalists, he is a frequent guest at renowned festivals and concert halls and has collaborated with the world’s leading orchestras, conductors, and pianists. Born in Weimar, he studied with Hans-Joachim Beyer in Leipzig and, later, with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.

Mr. Goerne has appeared on the world’s major opera stages, including The Metropolitan Opera, Madrid’s Teatro Real, Opéra national de Paris, Vienna Staatsoper, and Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. His Wagner roles have included Wolfram (Tannhäuser), Amfortas (Parsifal), Kurwenal (Tristan and Isolde), and Wotan (The Ring). Other notable roles include Orest (Richard Strauss’s Elektra) and Jochanaan (Strauss’s Salome) and the title roles in Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle and Berg’s Wozzeck.

His artistry has been documented on numerous recordings, many of which have received prestigious awards, including four Grammy nominations, an ICMA Award, a Gramophone Award, the BBC Music Magazine Vocal Award 2017, and a Diapason d’or arte. After his legendary recordings with Vladimir Ashkenazy and Alfred Brendel for Universal Music, he recorded The Goerne / Schubert Edition, a series of select Schubert songs with eminent pianists, released on 12 CDs for Harmonia Mundi. He has received rave reviews for his latest recordings of Brahms songs with Christoph Eschenbach, Schumann songs with Markus Hinterhäuser, Mahler songs with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and Wagner arias with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

In addition to his New York Philharmonic residency, Matthias Goerne’s 2018–19 season highlights include concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Pittsburgh and Houston Symphony Orchestras, and with orchestras in Europe and Japan. He appears as Kurwenal in Tristan and Isolde at Opéra national de Paris, and as Amfortas in Parsifal at the Vienna Staatsoper. Song recitals with Daniil Trifonov and Leif Ove Andsnes take him to Berlin’s Philharmonie, Philharmonie de Paris, London’s Wigmore Hall, Barcelona’s Palau de la Música, and other major European venues.
