Press reviews Mahler Lieder Innsbruck

After my concert with Mahler Songs of a Wayfarer and Theophil Ensemble Wien at the Meister-& Kammerkonzerte Innsbruck on October 14th, 2013 several reviews have been published. Please read two excerpts below:

Kronen Zeitung, 16. 10.2013

“Wiener Melange” begeisterte

“(…) Klemens Sander erwies sich als großartiger Interpret dieser Lieder mit schönen Farben in allen Registern seines hohen Baritons – und auch mit der nötigen Schlichtheit und Innigkeit der Gestaltung zum Beispiel in der Lindenbaum-Episode des vierten Gesellen-Liedes. (…)”

Tiroler Tageszeitung, 16.10.2013

“(…) Andreas N. Tarkmann verkleinerte Mahlers ersten Liederzyklus „Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen“ auf eine Singstimme mit Oktett. Klemens Sander, Bariton, sang mit hellem Timbre und natürlicher Diktion. Die Bearbeitung erfreute mit einer Klangbalance, ohne die Stimme zu übertönen. Textdeutlich auch bei raschen Tempi und schlank, aber rund im Fortissimo verzichtete er auf expressiv intensivierende Ausdeutung. (…)”

“Schwanengesang”-CD – recent reviews

Some new reviews on my recent CD “Schwanengesang” have been released during the last months. For example “Kronen Zeitung Steiermark” writes:

“… Sander steht eher in der Tradition der Sänger, die Schubert ganz von Innen zum Leuchten bringen möchten. Intim und feinfühlig singt er die 13 Lieder, denen noch vier Stücke nach Texten von Johann Gabriel Seidl beigegeben sind. Der extrem wortdeutlich singende Sander rückt das Resignative, das Tragische dieser Stücke in den Vordergrund. Mehr >> | More >>

Biography

“… and then the second highlight of the evening appeared in the person of Klemens Sander, with large gesture and impressive baritone.
No matter, where and how, in the role of torero Escamilllo Klemens Sander was an ideal cast
. ” (Der neue Merker)

Klemens Sander was born in Austria. A former member of St. Florian Boy’s Choir, Klemens studied at the University of Music Vienna with Helena Lazarska, Robert Holl and David Lutz. Additionally, he has taken part in masterclasses with Thomas Hampson, Gundula Janowitz, Dagmar Pecková and Hartmut Höll.

As a resident soloist for both the Staatstheater Karlsruhe and Volksoper Wien, Klemens has performed e.g. Papageno (Magic Flute), Conte Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro), Belcore (L´Elisir dAmore), Donner (Rheingold), the title-role in Eugene Onegin, Marcello and Schaunard (La Bohème), Falke (Die Fledermaus), Marco (Gianni Schicchi), Silvio (Pagliacci) and Harlekin (Ariadne auf Naxos).

A regular guest at the Theater an der Wien, Klemens has performed Handel’s Giulio Cesare under René Jacobs, Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites under Bertrand de Billy, Strauss’ Intermezzo under Kirill Petrenko and Britten’s Death in Venice under Donald Runnicles. Recently he could be heard at Theater an der Wien in The Telephone by Gian Carlo Menotti. Further operatic engagements include Papageno (Magic Flute) for Grand Theatre Luxembourg, Die Gezeichneten under Kent Nagano for the Salzburg Festival, Papageno (Magic Flute) at Leipzig Opera, Seikyo in Tan Dun’s Tea at both Teatro Carlo Felice Genova and Neue Oper Wien, the title role in Don Giovanni and Escamillo in Carmen at the Opera Festival Klosterneuburg as well as Conte Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) for the National Opera Vilnius.

Recent concert highlights include Weill´s Die sieben Todsünden and Bach´s Christmas Oratorio at Musik Festival Grafenegg, Mozart’s C minor Mass  at Salzburg Festival, Handel’s Messiah, Judas Maccabäus and Bach’s St Matthew Passion (Wiener Konzerthaus), Fauré’s Requiem at both the Berliner Philharmonie and at the Gewandhaus Leipzig, Beethoven’s Missa solemnis at Wiener Musikverein and with the Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo,

Klemens made his Wigmore Hall recital début in 2005 with Charles Spencer after winning the “Richard Tauber Prize for singers”. Furthermore, after being awarded the Lied Prize at the International Competition in S’Hertogenbosch, Klemens has established himself an acclaimed recitalist performing for Salzburg Easter Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, BBC Cardiff, Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival, Oxford Lieder Festival, at venues including Schubertsaal (Wiener Konzerthaus), Gläserner Saal (Wiener Musikverein) and with pianist Justus Zeyen at both Mozarteum (Salzburg) and Centre des Arts Pluriel (Luxembourg).
