Congratulations to Matthias Goerne on receiving this year’s Prix Bayreuth from the Académie du Disque Lyrique. This was for his role as Wotan on the Naxos recording of Richard Wagner’s opera Die Walküre (8.660394-97), released in November 2016 and adjudged by the Academy ‘The Best Performance on a Wagner Recording’. The release also featured conductor Jaap van Zweden and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

Goerne attracted glowing reviews for his performance, including this comment from Opera News:

“Goerne is a revelation. His beauty of tone and vivid projection of text will be no surprise to listeners who know his work in lieder; what’s astonishing is his ability to sustain these virtues throughout the long role, even in its most strenuous passages.”
