Vocal Arts DC presents
Christian Gerhaher, baritone & Gerold Huber, piano

Collaborators and best friends for over 30 years, the German duo of baritone Christian Gerhaher and pianist Gerold Huber have amassed a fanatical and enormous following of admirers through their many award-winning recordings of song literature and performances on the world's concert platforms. Their program features selections by Gustav Mahler, including "Kindertotenlieder" as well as songs from "Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen" and "Des Knaben Wunderhorn."

"Mr. Gerhaher and Mr. Huber have become bywords for sensitivity, cerebral depth, and seeming perfection in a lieder repertoire that they have made their own." (The New York Times)

Performance Timing: Part One - 40 min.; Intermission - 20 min.; Part Two - 40 min.
