Famed Latvian bass-baritone Egils Siliņš has released his latest album, Schubert und Strauss Lieder, featuring solo performances of songs by Franz Schubert and Richard Strauss, accompanied on piano by Helmut Deutsch.
The performance, recorded live at the Baltais flīģelis concert hall in Sigulda on December 20, 2011, also includes two Latvian songs, ‘Glāsts’ by Jānis Mediņš and ‘Brīnos es’ by Alfrēds Kalniņš.
Siliņš, perhaps the best known Latvian opera singer, was the first singer from the Latvian Opera to perform at La Scala in Milan, the Vienna Staatsoper, and at the New York Metropolitan Opera House. Siliņš repertoire includes more than 90 roles, and he has performed in opera houses all over the world. He will be performing the role of Wotan in the Wagner operas Das Rheingold and Die Walküre at the Opéra National de Paris in February and March.
Helmut Deutsch has worked with dozens of renowned singers throughout his career and is currently a professor at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München.
