At the beginning of her career, which has been accompanied by enthusiastic reactions from press and public alike, the Buenos Aires-born mezzo-soprano Bernarda Fink made a name for herself notably as an interpreter of Early Music. Under the direction of conductors such as René Jacobs, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Philippe Herreweghe, Trevor Pinnock and Marc Minkowski, the singer caused a sensation in works by Monteverdi, Rameau, Bach, Handel, and other composers from the Baroque era.

Since then, Bernarda Fink has significantly expanded her musical horizons, a fact demonstrated not only by her CD Canciones Argentinas, a charming homage to the music of her Argentinian homeland. Today, her wide-ranging repertoire includes operas, oratorios and lieder by Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Rossini and Dvořák, as well as works by Berlioz, Wagner and Mahler.

For her lieder recital at the Philharmonie, Bernarda Fink has put together of exquisite, out-and-out Romantic programme: Schumann’s deeply sad Lenau-setting Sechs Gedichte und Requiem op. 90 stands alongside songs by Antonín Dvořák, in which the composer pays homage to the earthy and melancholy folk music of his native Bohemia and Moravia. The third composer of the group is Gustav Mahler, represented by, among others, the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. Bernarda Fink is accompanied by the American pianist, Anthony Spiri.
