The DVD recording of „Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg“ from the Bayreuth Festival with Klaus Florian Vogt in the role of Walther von Stolzing has been nominated for the International Opera Awards 2019. The DVD has been released at Deutsche Grammophon in July 2018. The International Opera Awards is an annual celebration of excellence in opera around the world, this year’s ceremony will take place in London on 29 April.
On the 1st March 2019 Klaus Florian Vogt is back in a Wagner role: at the „Forum am Schlosspark“ in Ludwigsburg he will sing Siegmund in a concert version of „The Valkyrie“. Astrid Kessler is Sieglinde, the other soloists are Catherine Foster (Brünnhilde), Sebastian Holecek (Wotan), Monika Bohinec (Fricka) and Magnus Piontek (Hunding). Guillermo García Calvo conducts the Robert-Schumann-Philharmonie. Performance: 1st March 2019, 6.00 pm.
On 23 and 24 February 2019 Klaus Florian Vogt is a guest in the Concertgebouw with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra for Gustav Mahler’s Symphony no 8, also known as „Symphony of a Thousand“. It bears this name for a reason: with its large orchestration, including many vocal soloists and choirs, it has a fullness of sound that reaches almost operatic proportions. Marc Abrecht is conducting both concerts.
