Happy birthday to the German baritone Christian Gerhaher, getting younger by the day.



  • JohnB says:

    Best of the best.

    Happy birthday to the most fascinating and at the same time modest singer of his generation!

  • Petros Linardos says:

    Also getting wiser, though he never seemed wanting in that respect.
    Those of us who lament the absence of well rounded musicians among stars need look no further to see we are wrong.

  • Helen says:

    I love Christian Geherher’s voice. Very refined. Saw him last Friday in London, but thought him somewhat miscast as Figaro. Happy Birthday though.
