Witness the highly anticipated Celebrity Series debut of Benjamin Appl, a German baritone rightfully called ”the most promising of today’s up-and-coming song recitalists” (Financial Times).

With an exquisite voice that “belongs to the last of the old great masters of song,” (Süddeutsche Zeitung), Appl brings to life Schubert's powerful song cycle Winterreise, a piece sure to highlight his sensitivity, dramatic range, and musical storytelling.

Having recently made his American recital debut in 2019, Appl’s stateside star is still rapidly rising, which makes this is a prime opportunity to experience the young sensation in a pinnacle of the song cycle repertory in the intimacy of Longy’s Pickman Hall.

Seating for this performance is limited. This performance is not eligible for group discounts.

“…unbearably moving…”
