German baritone Matthias Goerne’s arresting performance in William Kentridge’s Winterreise was a highlight of the 2014 White Light Festival. Now he brings his "chilling intensity" and "ethereal lyricism" (New York Times) to an all-Beethoven recital in Alice Tully Hall. The robust baritone and "ideal singer of lieder" (New York Times) surveys art songs from his homeland by the German master, joined by "pristine, lyrical" pianist Jan Lisiecki (New York Times), who at age 23 is himself on the trajectory to superstardom.
