German Baritone Benjamin Appl has been called the best Lieder singer among the young generation of artists (Gramophone Magazine). He had the good fortune to study with the greatest 20th century master of this genre, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau; Appl was his last student. Appl is “a compelling storyteller, alive to the smallest flickers of humor or pathos in a text” (The Spectator). “The voice has a burnished, oaky beauty as well as considerable sweetness, while the interpretations are suffused with a gentle intelligence, an instinct for unforced but direct communication and what feels like a real love for the repertoire.” (Gramophone).

Appl, along with pianist Simon Lepper, will present Heimat (Homeland), a programme whose motifs come from the vocal chamber music of composers from various eras writing about their homeland, leaving to join the wide world, and the ensuing longing for their roots. About the circle of life which none of us can escape.
