ART OF SONG PROGRAM

This program, for a small cohort of eight singers and four pianists, is devoted to the study and performance of Art Song.  During this two-week session, participants study with all faculty members, voice and piano, thus receiving advice from a variety of musical traditions and perspectives.  The session also offers detailed study of text, diction, and action coaching.  Our goal is to provide the selected Fellows the luxury of total immersion in Art Song in a community of artists from around the world.

ANNE SCHWANEWILMS

German Soprano Anne Schwanewilms performs to great acclaim at the world’s major opera houses and concert venues. Hailed as one of the foremost interpreters of Richard Strauss, Ms. Schwanewilms is renowned for “her unfailing instinct for the finest details of phrasing and timing” (The Guardian, 2004) and vocal “brilliance, warmth, suppleness and technical mastery” (Österreich, 2009).

Ms. Schwanewilms’ repertoire of operatic heroines extends beyond those of Strauss to include, among others, Elsa (Lohengrin), Elisabeth (Tannhäuser), Madame Lidoine (Dialogues des Carmélites), Marie (Wozzeck) and Desdemona (Otello).

“A true sound painter” (MusicWeb International, 2012), Anne Schwanewilms is considered one of today’s finest lieder recitalists, appearing regularly with Malcolm Martineau, Charles Spencer and Roger Vignoles, both in Europe and abroad.

Anne Schwanewilms’ extensive discography includes DVD recordings of Die Gezeichneten (Salzburg Festival, Kent Nagano, DSO, 2005), Die Frau ohne Schatten (Salzburger Festival, 2011), Christian Thielemann, Wiener Philharmoniker); Der Rosenkavalier (Fabio Luisi, Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, 2007); Dialogues des Carmélites (Simone Young, Hamburgische Staatsoper, 2008); solo albums of Strauss’ (Four Last Songs plus extracts from Rosenkavalier, Capriccio and Arabella with the Gürzenich-Orchestra, Markus Stenz) and Wagner (Wesendonck Lieder and arias with the RSO Vienna, Cornelius Meister), numerous lieder CDs (to name but a few: Liszt and Mahler: Das himmlische Leben, Schumann and Hugo Wolf: Mondnacht and, as her latest, Mahler and Schönberg including Kindertotenlieder and the Rückert songs.

In 2002, Anne Schwanewilms was named Opernwelt’s Singer of the Year.  A live recording of Elektra (Thielemann, Staatskapelle Dresden), with Anne Schwanewilms in the part of Chrysothemis, was nominated for a Grammy award 2014 in the category “Best Opera Recording”.
