Born and raised in the Black Forest of Germany, the baritone Detlef Roth studied at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart, winning several international voice competitions, including the Belvedere in Vienna, and the inaugural Voix Wagnériennes in Strasbourg. In 1995 he made his début as a principal at the Paris Opéra Comique as Fluth in The Merry Wives of Windsor. He has since then sung dozens of rôles on the stages of leading opera houses worldwide. He is equally well-known for his extensive concert repertoire, especially for the German oratorios of Bach and Mendelssohn or works by Schumann, Brahms and Mahler, as well as world premières of contemporary music. His career has brought collaboration with a number of major orchestras and distinguished conductors. His recordings include Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, Beethoven’s Choral Symphony, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, and a prize-winning recording of little-known Schubert Lieder with the pianist Ulrich Eisenlohr for Naxos. In addition he can be heard on DVD in Orff’s Carmina Burana and Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte.
