Kurt Azesberger by Fischerlehner

Kurt Azesberger received his earliest musical training as an alto soloist with the boys’ choir of the abbey of St Florian in Austria, and completed his vocal studies with Hilde Rössl-Majdan, Kurt Equiluz, and Peter Schreier.

His international concert career has taken him to the leading musical centres, where he has made his reputation above all as the Evangelist in the Bach Passions; however, the music of the twentieth century is also an essential aspect of his artistic activity, as are song recitals, of which he is particularly fond. Among recent highlights of his operatic career are the roles of Titus (La clemenza di Tito), Aegisthus (Elektra), Mime (Das Rheingold), and the title role in the world premiere of Ich, Hiob by Thomas Daniel Schlees.

His CDs include a live recording of Schmidt’s Das Buch mit den sieben Siegeln at the Vienna Musikverein under Horst Stein, Bach secular cantatas and Keiser’s Croesus, both under René Jacobs, Schubert’s Lazarus under Helmuth Rilling, Schoenberg’s Die Jakobsleiter under Eliahu Inbal, and Mozart’s missae breves under Nikolaus Harnoncourt and ‘Coronation’ Mass under Leopold Hager.
