Arias and canzonas in memory of a tenor of the century
Tenors: Johannes Groß (Germany), Oscar Marin (Spain)
and Ricardo Marinello (Italy)
None other than star soprano Eva Lind will lead through the program!
Musical direction: Claudia Hirschfeld
With the concert program "Luciano", three outstanding tenors of our time would like to pay tribute to the tenor of the century Luciano Pavarotti.
One of the greatest opera singers of all time died on September 6, 2007: Luciano Pavarotti. In memory of this unforgotten artist, three exceptional contemporary choirs would like to celebrate their great idol by performing the wonderful arias and canzonas for which Luciano Pavarotti
became famous for - 100% live and without microphones. The program includes works by Verdi, Puccini and Donizetti as well as popular Italian songs.
The selected titles include "Nessun dorma", "'O sole mio", "Caruso", "La donna è mobile", "Torna a Surriento", "E lucevan le stelle", "Funiculì, Funiculà", "Vesti la giubba", "Mamma", "Granada" and many more.
The three singers with powerful voices come from Germany, Spain and Italy to commemorate the tenor of the century in music. Johannes Groß from Dortmund is the head and founder of the German Tenors and is considered by many to be one of the last heroic tenors of our time.
Oscar Marin comes from Barcelona, was a pupil of Montserrat Caballé and now sings all over the world, from Europe to China. Ricardo Marinello won the casting show "Das Supertalent" at the age of 18, but nevertheless continued his classical training afterwards and wowed audiences with his lyrical tenor voice - he recently caused a sensation on TikTok.
The performers will be accompanied by keyboard virtuoso Claudia Hirschfeld, who created a musical tribute to Pavarotti in 2017 for the 10th anniversary of his death entitled "Luciano", which has since won several prizes at composition competitions around the world.
The concert will be presented by none other than the well-known TV star soprano Eva Lind. She herself performed on stage with Luciano Pavarotti and will reflect on his varied life with stories and anecdotes.
