Pianist Mārtiņš Zilberts will be at the piano.
“I am very happy to visit Riga again to sing my solo concert this time with the wonderful pianist Mārtiņš Zilberts. This will be my first concert after a six-month break. The crisis gave me the opportunity to discover and sing chamber music, find comfort in it, so I wanted to include it in the concert repertoire to the most beautiful arias of Verdi, Rachmaninov, Dvorak and Weber for bass and of course – for both arias of Mephistopheles. Thank you to the Latvian audience for your friendship and trust! See you at the concert! ” tells about the concert repertoire Andreass Bauers-Kanabass, which Sandra Nedzvecka asks in the “Urgent Conversation”.
A. Bauers-Kanabass won the love of the Latvian public with the brilliant interpretation of the role of Mephistopheles. In the performance of Guno’s opera “Faust”. After the premiere of his performance on I. Lūsiņa’s “Culture Day” (October 8, 2016), he wrote: “Andreas Bauer in the role of Mephistopheles is outstanding both vocally and actorically. The singing of an experienced soloist in this image spoke equally convincingly with the premature scope and demonically flaming power, as well as the secular, cynical irony, as in the serenade with the famous laughter. At times, they both merged – for example, in the effective, ever-culminating self-confidence and submissive power in which Andreas Bauer sang rondo about the Golden Calf. ” “German bass Andreas Bauer – a soloist with an organic sense of humor and acting in such virtuosity that he is able to switch from funny to terrible lightning speed … Bauer has a natural magnetism, openness and artistry, which gives the impression that the role (Mephistopheles) suits him as poured and does not cause any difficulties, ”writes A. Rozentāls on the portal“ Satori ”(1.11.2016.)
German bass Andreas Bauer-Canabass has performed on world opera stages such as the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera House in London, the Bastille Opera in Paris, the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, the Seattle Opera, the Tokyo New National Opera, the Lyon Opera, the Latvian National Opera, the Zemper Opera House in Dresden, Berlin opera, etc. Since 2013, he has been a soloist at the Frankfurt Opera.
