Gerhild Romberger

As a mezzo-soprano, Gerhild Romberger has always concentrated on concert performances, her work focusing on lieder recitals on a wide variety of themes, as well as on contemporary music. Her extremely extensive repertoire encompasses all the major contralto and mezzo-soprano parts in the oratorio and concert literature from the Baroque via the Classical and Romantic periods all the way to the twentieth century.

Significant career moments for Gerhild Romberger in recent years were the concerts with Manfred Honeck, who invited her to perform in, among other works, Mahler’s symphonies, Beethoven’s Missa solemnis and the Grosse Messe by Walter Braunfels. In addition, there has been her work with the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester and Riccardo Chailly, the Bayerischer Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra (with Schmidt’s Buch mit den sieben Siegeln and Mendelssohn’s Elijah with Thomas Hengelbrock), and with the Berlin Philharmonic, under Gustavo Dudamel, among others.

In the 2015/2016 season she has performed at La Scala with Beethoven´s C-Dur-Messe under Franz Welser-Möst, and a great tour with the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Ivan Fischer and Mahler´s 3. Symphony has led her to Budapest, Rome, Brussels and Barcelona.

She now lives with her family in Detmold, where for a long time she has been an extremely popular professor of singing at the Academy of Music.
