Magnificent Voices

Montserrat Caballé is practically synonymous with a perfect belcanto. Like a second Callas, her incomparable technique, breathtaking pianissimo and unique charisma have helped her to sing herself into the hearts of thousands. On December 10 at 8 pm, she will present a Christmas concert at the Gasteig Philharmonic, accompanied by the Radio Symphony Orchestra Pilsen and the Augsburg Boys’ Choir. Just a day later at the same time and same place, another extraordinary vocal artist — Thomas Quasthoff — sings Bach and Telemann with the Berlin Baroque Soloists. Ticket prices for both concerts range from € 34 to 89. Baritone Thomas Hampson is at home on all international opera stages, and on December 20 at 8 pm, he will perform at Munich’s Prinzregententheater. The program is dedicated to his second love: the song. Tickets for Hampsons’ evening of song are on sale for € 46-69. A month later on January 20, Vesselina Kasarova displays her awesome coloraturas at the Herkulessaal, with the Bulgarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. The concert — an eclectic cross-section of Kasarova’s most beautiful opera arias — begins at 7 pm. Tickets are available at VVK outlets for € 69.10-102.70. <<<
