New York Times on Christian Gerhaher

The Gramophone Award–winning Freiburg Baroque Orchestra presents a bountiful Mozart survey on period instruments, beginning with the vivacious “Paris” Symphony. “Utterly absorbing” (Guardian) baritone Christian Gerhaher performs arias from Mozart’s most popular operas, and the lyrical Clarinet Concerto complements the vocal works’ rich conversational tone.
