Samuel Hasselhorn

New CD: Urlicht

At the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the lied increasingly took on orchestral garb. The boundary with opera became almost impalpable. That is what Samuel Hasselhorn and Łukasz Borowicz demonstrate here, in a splendid programme mingling smiles and disillusionment, where some of the most characteristic orchestral lieder and operatic arias of this Austro-German ‘fin de siècle’ era blend perfectly together.

Here is a teaser for this CD: Urlicht - CD Teaser

Samuel is looking forward to be making some exciting role debuts in the season 24/25 such as Eugene Onegin and Papageno (Die Zauberflöte) at Staatstheater Nürnberg, as well as  Barbier Schneidebart (Die schweigsame Frau) at Staatsoper Berlin under Christian Thielemann. He will also revisit Wolfram von Eschenbach (Tannhäuser) at Deutsche Oper Berlin and Conte Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) at Staatstheater Nürnberg.
