Benjamin Appl won Gramophone “Young Artist of the Year 2016”. He is a former chorister of the famous Regensburger Domspatzen, Appl is now one of the most interesting artists of the new generation, with a great voice, charming personality and great stage presence.

“HEIMAT” his debut album with Sony Classical presents songs from different countries related to the actual topic “HEIMAT” (homeland).

The booklet of the limited first edition contains an additional essay by Neil McGregor, former director of the British Museum (famous for their exhibition about GERMANY) and upcoming director of the Berlin Humboldtforum.

Described as ‘the current front-runner in the new generation of Lieder singers’ (Gramophone Magazine, UK), Benjamin Appl is celebrated by audiences and critics in recital, concerts and opera. He is member of the BBC New Generation Artist scheme from 2014 until 2016 and was an ECHO Rising Star artist for the 2015/16 season, appearing in recital at major European venues including the Barbican Centre London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wiener Konzerthaus, Philharmonie Paris and Cologne and the Laeiszhalle Hamburg. He has won the Gramophone ’Young Artist of the Year’ award in 2016 and Wigmore Hall London has named him a Wigmore Hall Emerging Artist (2015/16). The young baritone became an exclusive SONY Classical recording artist in May 2016.

“The voice has a burnished, oaky beauty as well as considerable sweetness (well captured in Sony’s natural engineering), while the interpretations are suffused with a gentle intelligence, an instinct for unforced but direct communication and what feels like a real love for the repertoire.” (Gramophone Magazine)
