Benjamin Appl by Lars Borges / Sony Classical
There are singers who pour forth beautiful tone, find nuances in a song, or plum dramatic depths. Benjamin Appl does it all—more accurately, he inhabits a song. “The current front-runner of the new generation of lieder singers” (Gramophone), Appl is “a compelling storyteller, alive to the smallest flickers of humor or pathos in a text” (The Spectator). You’ll want to be there when the young German baritone shows why audiences around the world call him lieder royalty.
