Bejun Mehta / Jonathan Ware
© Marco Borggreve

The magazine »Opera News« sees Bejun Mehta as »perhaps today’s most cultivated and musically convincing countertenor«. Mehta already sang as a soloist at the age of ten under Leonard Bernstein, and made his debut in 1998 as Handel’s Partenope at the New York City Opera. Since then, his career has led him to practically all major opera houses and to festivals like the Salzburg Festival. His piano partner is the well-known American lied accompanist Jonathan Ware.
Unlike many of his colleagues, Mehta by no means confines himself to the Baroque repertoire: his concert tonight features the three great composers of the Viennese classical era, Haydn, Mozart und Beethoven. The latter wrote the first song cycle in music history: »An die ferne Geliebte«. But Mehta goes much further, performing Mahler’s refined Late Romantic, turn-of-the-century cycle »Rückert-Lieder« and the spiritual »Canticles« that Benjamin Britten composed after the Second World War.
