Benjamin Appl (baritone)

Described as ‘the current front-runner in the new generation of Lieder singers’ (Gramophone), Benjamin Appl is celebrated by audiences and critics in recital, concerts and opera. He was member of the 2014-2016 BBC New Generation Artist scheme, an ECHO Rising Star artist for the 2015/16 season, appearing in recital at major European venues, and was named a 2015/16 Wigmore Hall Emerging Artist. He trained as a chorister at the renowned Regensburger Domspatzen and continued his studies at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. He had the fortune to be mentored by one of the greatest lieder singers, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.

An established recitalist, he has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Ravinia, Rheingau, Schleswig Holstein, Edinburgh International and Oxford Lieder festivals, at deSingel Antwerp, Heidelberger Frühling, and with Graham Johnson at the Klavier-Festival Ruhr. He is a regular recitalist at the Wigmore Hall and at the Schubertiade Hohenems and Schwarzenberg. In concert he has appeared with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Gabrieli Players & Consort, Les Violons du Roy, the Bach-Collegium Stuttgart, and on multiple occasions with the major BBC orchestras. He made his BBC Proms debut in September 2015 singing Brahms’ Triumphlied with Marin Alsop and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. His oratorio repertoire includes Bach’s Magnificat and St John and St Matthew Passions, Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s The Creation and Britten’s War Requiem. In 2017 he sang in the ZDF Adventskonzert with Christian Thielemann, Diana Damrau and the Staatskapelle Dresden.
