A soprano full of charm and sweetness, lightness and richness, perfectly at ease in her voice and role, beaming over our heads: a veritable treasure!” (FAZ). In summer 2010 appeared once again on the stage at the Salzburg Festival performing as Amore in Dieter Dorn’s Gluck version of Orfeo ed Euridice conducted by Riccardo Muti.
Christiane Karg also distinguished herself on the concert stage at an early age. For instance in the summer of 2009, when she performed with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus in Haydn’s L’isola disabitata (Silvia) at the Wiener Musikverein. During the 2009/10 season the soprano was engaged to perform with the NDR Radiophilharmonie (Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream), the Frankfurter Museumsorchester (Haydn’s Creation), the Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg (Mendelssohn’s Hymn of Praise under Claus Peter Flor) and Philharmonie Essen (Mahler’s 8th Symphony under Steven Sloane). She is also becoming increasingly popular on international concert stages: in 2010/2011 she performs in New York and Philadelphia with the Staatskapelle Dresden conducted by Daniel Harding (Brahms’ Requiem), she is singing Mozart’s Requiem in Salzburg under the baton of Jérémie Rohrer, and in spring 2011 she is performing Mahler’s 4th Symphony, both with the NDR Symphonieorchester conducted by Christoph Eschenbach, and on a Spain tour with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Euskadi conducted by Andrés Orozco-Estrada.
Christiane Karg has a particular passion for Lieder singing – most recently she gave a recital with Wolfram Rieger in May 2010 in Hohenems: “The 30 year old soprano singer from Bavaria already possesses most of the desirable qualities of a fully developed singer: an almost delightfully bright and flexible voice which she also knows how to darken perfectly when required, a moving piano presence, great volume and clear articulation that renders the libretto superfluous.” In the coming season she is due to sing at Lieder recitals including the Beethoven Festival in Bonn, Deutschlandfunk Köln, the Musikverein Wien (accompanied by Malcolm Martineau), with Mihaela Ursuleasa in Erlangen and Polling, and for the first time at the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg with Wolfram Rieger.
