“Baritone Dietrich Henschel is a towering figure, physically, intellectually, musically and theatrically.
His prowess as an interpreter, by which I mean precisely his ability to get below the surface of a song and right into its soul, is extraordinary.” Herald Scotland
Dietrich Henschel's international career began with a production of Busoni's “Dr. Faust ”at the Opéra Nationale de Lyon, for which he was awarded a Grammy for interpreting the title role.
At major opera in Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Florence, Munich, Hamburg, Zurich, Madrid and Brussels he interpreted roles such as Rossini's Figaro, Wolfram in Wagner's “Tannhäuser”, Monteverdi's Ulisse and Orfeo, Mozart's Don Giovanni, Beckmesser in Wagner's “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg”, Alban Bergs Wozzek and Dr. Schön in "Lulu", Golaud in Debussy's "Pelléas et Mélisande", Nick Shadow in Stravinsky's "The Rake’s Progress" and Henze's Prince of Homburg.
Contemporary composers such as Luciano Berio, Péter Eötvös, Detlev Glanert, Manfred Trojahn, Unsuk Chin, Peter Ruzicka, José-Maria Sanchez-Verdu and Chaya Czernowin have all dedicated leading parts to the artist in operas and concert pieces. Henschel has collaborated with conductors like Riccardo Chailly, Vladimir Jurowsky, Kent Nagano, Colin Davis, Kyrill Petrenko and Semyon Bychkov as well as with John Eliot Gardiner, Philippe Herreweghe or Nikolaus Harnoncourt.
Dietrich Henschel is particularly interested in theatrical and multimedia presentations of vocal music.
