Focus on the laureates of Voice 2018 : Samuel Hasselhorn

Following his First Prize triumph at the 2018 Voice Competition, German baritone Samuel Hasselhorn has quickly established himself as a multifaceted artist on the international level, who is at home equally in the genres of opera, Lied, and oratorio.

Highlights in the current 2022/23 season include roles such as Conte d’Almaviva in Le Nozze di Figaro and his debuts as Ford in Falstaff and Dandini in La Cenerentola at the Staatstheater Nürnberg, where he is a member of the ensemble. He will also make his debut at the Opéra national de Paris, in a ballet production of Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer). Numerous concerts and recitals will take him to Hanover, Brussels, Paris, Tallinn, Stuttgart, Barcelona, Budapest, Aix-en-Provence, Cambridge and Tokyo, to name but a few.

Last season he debuted at the Staatsoper Berlin and La Scala Milano, and with the Wiener Symphoniker at the Musikverein Wien. Other highlights included performances at Wigmore Hall in London, Boulez Saal in Berlin, in Bayreuth, Padova, and Cambridge. Previously, Hasselhorn has been a member of the Vienna State Opera for two seasons.

His second CD with pianist Joseph Middleton, „Glaube, Hoffnung, Liebe“ with Lieder by Franz Schubert, has been released earlier this year to critical acclaim. In 2020, they recorded the Schumann album „Stille Liebe“ together, also under the Harmonia Mundi label. This recording was elected the best Lieder CD of 2020 at the Prix Caecilia (Belgium). His first two CDs “Nachtblicke”, and the highly acclaimed “Dichterliebe²” with pianist Boris Kusnezow, were released in 2014 and 2018 with GWK RECORDS.

"With this fine collection of fifteen Schubert songs recorded in April 2021, two Lieder practitioners on the rise - lyric baritone Samuel Hasselhorn and pianist Joseph Middleton - make good on the promise shown in their previous Harmonia Mundi issue, devoted to Robert Schumann." "Glaube, Hoffnung, Liebe" Critic's choice of Opera News
