German tenor Fritz Wunderlich came from humble beginnings to become one of the most beloved German tenors of the 20th century. Renowned for his performances of Mozart’s tenor roles, Wunderlich was also a great interpreter of Lieder. In this recital, American tenor Eric Fennell and pianist Jocelyn Swigger recollect Wunderlich’s triumphs with arias and art songs by Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Lehár. Wunderlich’s life was cut short in his 30’s, but his interpretations live on through his recordings and the singers he has inspired, including Fennell. Praised for his “honeyed tenor” (New York Times) and “charismatic interpretations” (Opera News), Fennell has appeared on stages around the world in roles including Werther, Roméo and Hoffmann along with other operatic heroes (and anti-heroes), but in this intimate recital setting, audiences will experience, up close, Fennell’s extraordinary interpretive gifts and love of song.
