As a recitalist, Stéphane Degout is renowned for his highly sensitive interpretations of French mélodies and German Lieder. He has worked on this under the guidance of Ruben Lifschitz and has toured internationally in Amsterdam, Paris, London, Berlin, Brussels and New York. In concert he has performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Riccardo Muti and the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Esa-Pekka Salonen. At the Monnaie he sang Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder and Fauré’s Requiem under Alain Altinoglu, and he has also collaborated with René Jacobs, Marc Minkowski, John Nelson, Raphaël Pichon and Charles Dutoit.
Stéphane Degout was appointed Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in September 2012: a prestigious award which recognizes ‘significant contribution to the enrichment of French cultural inheritance’. He was also awarded the ‘Lyrical Artist of the Year’ prize at the Victoires de la Musique Classique of 2012 and the ‘Beste männliche Hauptrolle’ in June 2013 at the Musiktheaterpreis for his portrayal of Thomas’ Hamlet at the Theater an der Wien.
