HANS PETER BLOCHWITZ

Hans Peter Blochwitz, tenor

One of today's highly sought-after lieder and oratorio interpreters, German tenor HANS PETER BLOCHWITZ was born in 1949 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and studied in Mainz and Frankfurt. He made his United States debut as the Evangelist in Bach's St. Matthew Passion, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Sir Georg Solti, and he has appeared in a wide range of works - from early Baroque masses to Frank Martin's oratorio Golgotha and Henze's opera Der junge Lord. Although he is also well known for his Mozart roles and performances of the Requiem, Blochwitz's greatest personal affinity is for lieder, as evidenced by his award-winning recordings of song cycles by Schubert and Schumann. In 1993 his world premiere performance and subsequent recording of Hans Zender's work based on Schubert's Winterreise met with great success.
