The German tenor Knut Schoch studied singing in Hamburg with Wilfried Jochens and Alan Speer, completing his studies by attending a series of masterclasses. With a repertory that ranges from the medieval to the contemporary and includes oratorio, chamber music, Lieder and Baroque and Classical opera, he specialises particularly in the historical performance practice of music written before 1800, notably the oratorios of Handel and Bach’s Passions. He is much in demand as a soloist both at home and abroad and regularly appears at leading festivals including the Fête d’Automne in Paris, the Göttingen Händel Festival and the Schwetzingen, Schleswig-Holstein and Vienna Festivals. Radio and television recordings as well as CDs reflect the breadth of his activities. He has worked with many well-known ensembles, including the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Musica Fiata of Cologne, the Dutch Bach Society and the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble, and has appeared with conductors of the highest distinction. Among the awards that Knut Schoch has received are the 1995 Masefield Grant from FVS Society and first prize at the 1999 International Musica Antiqua Competition in Bruges. In 1993 he was appointed visiting professor of historical performance practice at the Hamburg Conservatory, and in 1999 became professor at the Hamburg Musikhochschule. Since 2008 he has taught at the Bremen Musikhochschule and has given masterclasses in Germany and abroad, in 2010 as guest lecturer at the Australian National University in Canberra.
